I'm interested in doing video transfer from VCR to PC and want to know which of the 3 capture devices I have has the best chance of working with my setup? I have 3 different symptoms happening with each.
My PC setup:
Ubuntu Karmic 9.10/2.6.31-20 generic
Socket 754 AMD Sempron 3000+ with passive cooling (non AMD64)
Biostar MB with Nforce3 250Gb chipset
NV31 GPU (Geforce FX5600 Ultra 128MB) using Nvidia 196 driver
1GB PC3200 DDR RAM
34GB SCSI coupled to a Adaptec 19160 card
dvd+-R floppy etc etc.
The devices in question:
USB: Dazzle Digital Photo Maker, using a USBvision driver recognized as a Global Village GV-7000)
--This one recognizes and I can display video but if I try to record in either xawtv or Kdenlive the program crashes.
PCI: Hauppauge WinTV model 38101
--When installed it shows /dev/video0 when I do an ls, but I don't get a signal with either composite or coax input.
PCI: Aurora Systems Fuse previously used on a Mac
--This card picks up the ZR36067 driver, but it's saying it can't initialize the i2c bus. Thus, no /dev/video* shows
Let me know which I should focus on and then I'll show the query dumps.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
