Webcam and TV card simultaneously?


I'm trying to make my webcam work--I've had it working in the past, but I added a PCI TV card to my setup in the past few weeks, and now I can't get my webcam working! /var/log/messages reports this when I plug in the webcam:

Feb 25 16:51:07 work kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.1-1, assigned address 2
Feb 25 16:51:10 work kernel: usb.c: registered new driver ov511
Feb 25 16:51:10 work kernel: ov511.c: USB OV511+ video device found
Feb 25 16:51:10 work kernel: ov511.c: model: Creative Labs WebCam 3
Feb 25 16:51:10 work kernel: ov511.c: Sensor is an OV7620
Feb 25 16:51:11 work kernel: ov511.c: Device at usb-00:1d.1-1 registered to minor 1
Feb 25 16:51:11 work kernel: ov511.c: v1.63 for Linux 2.4 : ov511 USB Camera Driver

But xawtv (both 'xawtv -device /dev/video1' and 'xawtv -device /dev/video2') does not pick up the picture. I have the TV card on /dev/video0.

Can any of you help me? Thanks in advance.

try camstream, it's an app that runs webcam, tv tuner and stuff in child windows, so you can open two at the same time. Just test it to see if you can get them both working (you can chose which one to open when you create a child window).

Camstream only detects one at a time. I unplugged the webcam and it detected only the TV card, then when I plugged the webcam in again, my only option was "/dev/video0"--and it only showed a blue screen. I looked in /dev and noticed that /dev/video1 is missing, also, and I assume that this would have something to do with the problem I'm having... What do I have to do to 'replace' that device?

mm i dunno, i'm having trouble with this video thing myself, trying to get the gatos drivers to work. The problem seems to be that the webcam overrides the /dev/video0. So you'll probably have to configure it so that either the webcame or the tv tuner is /dev/video1. The best place for finding this out will either be the slack forum (i guess) or hope some video guru passes by and knows the answer.
