TV Tuner (MSI TV@nywhere Master)


I got a TV Tuner card today, and was wondering if it would work under Linux or if I'll have to visualize xp.

It's a TV@nywhere Master MS-8606 ver 1.2 and it also says N1996 on the card.

here's link I found: http://tinyurl.com/2vypn

I have no experience with TV Tuners.


Hope to get some help,
I'Alta

It looks like your card should be detected as card=7.

Code:
grep -i msi /usr/src/linux-2.6.22.1/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.cx88
  7 -> MSI TV-@nywhere Master                              [1462:8606]
 13 -> MSI TV-@nywhere
Do you see anything like the below when you use the dmesg command in a console/console window.

Code:
cx2388x v4l2 driver version 0.0.6 loaded
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1d.7[A] -> GSI 23 (level, low) -> IRQ 23
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1d.7 to 64
CORE cx88[0]: subsystem: 0000:0000, board: MSI TV-@nywhere [card=13,insmod option]
TV tuner 33 at 0x1fe, Radio tuner -1 at 0x1fe
tveeprom 0-0050: Huh, no eeprom present (err=-121)?
cx88[0]/0: found at 0000:05:00.0, rev: 3, irq: 20, latency: 32, mmio: 0xf9000000
tuner 0-0060: Chip ID is not zero. It is not a TEA5767
tuner 0-0060: chip found @ 0xc0 (cx88[0])
tuner 0-0060: microtune: companycode=4d54 part=04 rev=04
tuner 0-0060: microtune MT2032 found, OK
tuner 0-0060: microtune: companycode=4d54 part=04 rev=04
tuner 0-0060: microtune MT2032 found, OK
cx88[0]/0: registered device video0 [v4l2]
cx88[0]/0: registered device vbi0
If so then it could already be setup and working depending on your TV standard most TV cards seem to default to PAL Euorpe. So if you use this for your reception then install a program like TVtime or xawtv launch the program and start playing around with the settings if you do not receive a signal.

If you cannot get it working can you post the output of the dmesg, lspci and lsmod commands and tells us which TV standard you use plus how you connect to get the signal coax cable, svideo, composite.

Edit:Typo

Thumbs up Thank you

Sorry to the latancy.

I just installed TV Time and it worked out of the box! Even NTSC (I'm in Europe) works, so I can now play my imported games!

Thank you very much!
