Question Hauppauge PVR-350 wont run with xawtv


hi you all,

at the moment im installing a hauppauge pvr-350 on my system...
ive successfully installed ivtv, and if i do
Code:
cat /dev/video0 > test.mpg
and then watch the video test.mpg, i see the snowflakes, this will say, that i have a input from the tvcard.

but if i want to start a tv application, here xawtv, i get the following error:
Code:
workstation:~# xawtv
This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.8-2-686-smp)
/dev/video0 [v4l2]: no overlay support
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway

Speicherzugriffsfehler
an other example is wmtv, there i get the following:
Code:
workstation:~# wmtv
/dev/video0 [v4l2]: no overlay support
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
wmtv: No such file or directory
wmtv: No such file or directory
wmtv: video device does not support scalling
or scantv:
Code:
[global]
freqtab = europe-west

[defaults]
input = Television
norm = PAL

invalid value for input: television
valid choices for "input": "Composite 0", "Composite 1", "Composite 2", "Composite 3", "Tuner 0", "Composite 4", "S-Video 0", "S-Video 1", "S-Video 2", "S-Video 3"
vbi: open failed [/dev/vbi]
open /dev/vbi: Invalid argument
im running debian sarge, with the debian kernel 2.6.8-2-686-smp, my tvcard is placed on a asus P5GDC-Deluxe, my x-version is XFree86 Version 4.3.0.1 and i use windowmaker.

do anybody know whats wrong? thanks for every answer you can give to me.

cheers willi

Whats wrong is the user is being stupid. xawtv does not have any MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 decoding capablity. Use mplayer or vlc.

There is no mplayerTV. xawtv and scantv uses raw data which Hauppauge PVR-350 does not send. There are utilities that comes with ivtv. Install those and use them to change the channel and the inputs.

Sheesh! Does anybody RTFM!
