Greetings fellow Linux nerds.
I have a Hauppauge 0166 "Impact VCB", PCI capture card in my box and getting video from this pesky little thing is proving to be difficult. I attempt to read from the device, but no video is coming through - I can confirm that video is being provided to the device and that the format, etc is correct, so the problem is in Linux *somewhere.* I am attempting to capture video off the s-video interface. My device does not have composite out.
Does anyone have any experience with this or similar devices in getting it to work?
The card has 3 composite and one s-video in. Though only this video device shows up:
# ls -l /dev/video*

# lspci | grep video

# lsmod | egrep 'video|bttv'

I'm trying to use VLC to grab the video with V4L, V4L2, etc. Nothing works. Nor does video work in XaWTV, etc.
This is on Ubuntu Jaunty, kernel 2.6.28.
