nvidia graphics card, ati tv tuner


Is there any way I can get the ATI tv tuner (TV Wonder VE) working together under RH9 Linux (or XP)? I've read on the ATI site that Nvidia cards dont support ATI TV Tuner. I can see an image (XAWTV) but all the channels are really one lower than it says. I also need to adjust the frequency to get the best picture qaulty.

If you have it working, then just edit the ~/.xawtvrc file to suit your needs. As a note, the stations will appear in the menu in the same order in which they appear in the file - so, change the order of channels in the file and they'll appear in that order when you fire up xawtv.

Well, the qaulity of the picture isn't very good even with adjustments. Before I installed my Geforce, the TV tuner was pretty good ( for 30 bucks). I think ATI has something against Nvidia . On some display frequencies, the TV picture isn't even see-able.

This will get you going. NVIDIA/LINUX and the ATI card your using works fine. I have the same setup.

Just make sure that it's not a hardware thing, first. Make sure your PCI card is not in the PCI slot right-next-to the AGP slot. Sometimes these share resources, so it's not a good idea to have 2 graphics devices there. And there might be interference from other devices...
