Hi,

try : dmesg too. Then go to terminal again and try : sensors-detect. Follow the instructions. Which TV package you have installed? KDTV is not working very good for me. I am using TVTime.

Go to the following thread:

htpp://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/answers.php?action=viewarticle&artid=278
maybe that will help.
regards

try:

1. sensors-detect - follow the instructions (hope it wors with your distro)

2. dmesg : your TV card is not autodetected. ( bttv0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC *** [card=0,autodetected])
so try sensors-detect and use TVTime.

And by the way, which TV card you have? (Haupauge, AVER TV , Lifeviev or....??? ).

Do you dual boot windows? If you do , you can see what kind of card you have, most probably it is autodetected properly.

Could you open your box and see what is written on the TV card??

Try also this to check whether you have your card installed :

Open terminal window as root, then:
1. tvtime -hwscan ( you will see whether tvtime is installed)
2. tvtime-scanner

also see if you have video4linux installed, run v4l-conf.

regards

all you people figuring out TV cards... is there any chance at all I can watch TV on a Mandriva laptop? I have changed cards once, changed distros from Ubuntu... and can't figure it out. I am willing to change distros and card again for the chance to make it work. It worked great on windows.. haha, sad but true. Currently using Mandriva 06 and Hauppauge WinTV USB2 (not the PVR version), if anyone knows how to save me a trip to fry's.

Well it says 1 and 11 for the cards so you would use card=1 or card=11 when loading the bttv modules along with a tuner=?? I would try with I assume the numbers for the PAL ones. A line to try as root would look something like this modprobe bttv card=1 tuner=?? after having used rmmod bttv tuner to have unloaded the modules. Just keep repeating until if you have installed scantv package using it you hear some sound when it goes through the scan then you know you have hopoefully loaded the proper card=, tuner= combination then try xawtv or the tv viewer of your choice and see if you have video.

Some Google'ing indicates that your card has a temic tuner, so when supplying the arguments for the bttv module also give tuner=#, where # equals the appropriate tuner number:
Code:
 type=n          type of the tuner chip. n as follows:
                                0: Temic PAL tuner
                                1: Philips PAL_I tuner
                                2: Philips NTSC tuner
                                3: Philips SECAM tuner
                                4: no tuner
                                5: Philips PAL tuner
                                6: Temic NTSC tuner
                                7: Temic PAL tuner
                                *8: Alps TSBH1 NTSC tuner
                                *9: Alps TSBE1 PAL tuner
So in your case its either 0, 6 or 7

Ok now I have another problem with this card.

I found out that modprobe bttv card=1 is the right choice. And that tuner is automaticaly set. But now I don't know how to load module at start up.

I wrote in my /etc/modules :
Code:
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

lp
psmouse
bttv card=1
But card doesn't load at boot
