Win-TV USB Device


Hi,

I want to get my Hauppage Win-TV USB device working in linux, but i'm not sure where to start..

1) Will I need some board-specific USB drivers?
2) What if I can't get the drivers for the device in linux?
3) I could run the software in wine...? Does wine have usb-support?

Cheers for any help

due to linux being really cool, the fact that it is usb shouldn't matter. if you have usb itself up and running, and usbview or a similar utility picks up that it is found on the usb bus you should just be able to use it as if it were a local device using the generic tv driver, so try "modprobe bttv" and running xawtv or which app you prefer.

i tried searching google for info, and scarily found myself...

I don't exactly know what you mean by having usb running. and a locate usbview reveals nothing.

I think i've been unclear here, this is the NOVA-T, which is a DVB reciever which means you select chanels. Not like a normal TV-IN thing, which I think you mean...
