XAWTV/SCANTV and ATI All-In-Wonder 128 PRO


This is on Mandrake 9.0

I try to run SCANTV but it tells me:

v4l2: open /dev/v4l/video0: No such file or directory
v4l: open /dev/v4l/video0: No such file or directory
no grabber device available


There definitely is a device since I get TV just fine.

It is apparent to me that I need to point it to a device, but I haven't been able to figure out what the name of that device is.

The video card is an AGP card, but even though I have looked in all the configs, I can't tell where to send SCANTV.

Can someone please help?

TIA,

Joseph

Is /dev/v4l/video0 the correct device to use? Is that the correct path to the device file? (not just /dev/video0)?

No, that is what I get when I run scantv without switches...


[joseph@localhost video]$ scantv
v4l2: open /dev/v4l/video0: No such file or directory
v4l: open /dev/v4l/video0: No such file or directory
no grabber device available
[joseph@localhost video]$


This is what I meant when I said that I knew I had to point it somewhere...I can't figure out where.
