Pinnacle PCTV USB2 50e Ubuntu


Recently I buy an Pinnacle PCTV USB2 50e.
I use Ubuntu Edgy 6.10.
After hours of goggling i didn't make it to work.

No sound, no channels from analog source (antenna)

I tryied tvtime, kdetv, xawtv, xdtv, zapping, mythtv ......

Can anybody suggest me a link with a step by step configurations.
or tell what to do
The kernel find my tv tuner and create 2 devices /dev/vdi0(not working) /dev/video0(I cant configure it)

P.S.
My card works fine with dscaler(win)

I spent a lot of time trying to get Pinnacle hardware to work with Linux. I never succeeded.

Same here with an internal PCI TV card(forget the model)...

I switched to a Hauppage PCI TV card, and its worked perfectly.

Yep. My Hauppauge PVR 350 works great.
