low-level set the freq for a tv-tuner card.
Hi, first of all. this is not a "problem". it is more like a question...
i have allways used mplayer (mencoder) on my server with a hauppauge HVR 4000 card. that works great. the thing is, now im bored of mencoder, and i want to "swim" deeper into the system...(xD)
i have understand it that when i do a:
mplayer tv://300 (example frequency)
- Mplayer - sets the frequency on the card... how does it do that??
i used to use this command to watch tv streamed from my server:
mencoder tv://SE11 -o >( nc x.x.x.x 1024 )
that will stream the video to a box on port 1024
im not english so sorry for my bad language.
the point is; i want to know how to manually set the channel for the card, if i just do a:
i get an input/output error
as far as i know this is because i havet tuned into a channel.
so if anybody knows howto i can just do something like this to set a channel:
or something like that to set the channel, so i can get the video stream from /dev/video0 it would be great.
this is my first post here, and belive me, i have googled.
