Question Pinnacle PCTV Plus Linux Driver


Is anyone aware of a driver cum video viewer for the Pinnacle PCTV Plus? I found a link on Pinnacle's website, but it just doesn't seem to work.

The driver is probably the bttv driver (assuming the 'Plus' is similar to the standard model). Try 'modprobe bttv' to see if it loads.

There are several viewer apps around. xawtv has been around a long time and was still being actively developed last time I looked.
