ATI AIW Tuner


How do I get my tuner to work under linux? I have downloaded files pertaining to this card, but I am unsure what to do next. I have had nothing but failure with this project.

If I remember correctly, the TV tuner part of the AIW card does not use a standard chipset (most use bttv or bt856) but the AIWs use different ones. I've tried a few times to get it to work on my old AIWPro (not 128) but to no avail. If you are really determined, then go for it, but if, like me, you are lazy, then I would just get a PCI addon card (like the Huppauge cards) and do it the easy way.

Talking Success

I have finally made my ATI Mach64 GTB Tuner work successfully.
The only issue that has arisen is no capture capabilities. <???>

You might want to check out this site:

http://gatos.sourceforge.net/

This is where I downloaded the newest driver and the software to view my tuner. I still have yet to activate the capture ability, but otherwise it works great... I do not want to push it at this point...

Check out the site and I hope it helps you out...
