Setup TV-Card and additional Video-In on Video Card

Setup TV-Card and additional Video-In on Video Card

Post by Sven Templ » Sat, 17 May 2003 23:41:29

Hello *,

I used a Hauppauge WinTV PCI with bttv. Now I have installed a new
video card (NVIDIA GF4) with an additional video-in port. Without X11
bttv/bttvgrab runs perfect. After starting X and run bttvgrab
following error occurs:

/usr/bin/bttvgrab error: Cannot allocate memory (open /dev/bttv)

I think video-in on new video card blocks out the video device. How
should I configure second video device or how can I switch off
video-in on video card.

Thanks in advance,



1. Programming video card (ATI card w/ s-video & tv-out) Need direction to correct info

    I hope some people read this and can help me out.

I have a ATI Rage Pro pci video card that has s-video and tv-out. I want
to be able to use the s-video and tv-out on the card. Now, is this down
by the app(like what I find on Video4Linux) or is it in Xfree86?

I want to know if there has been a driver developed which accesses the
s-video and tv-out on the ATI card. If so, a pointer to the source would
be great.

If not, then I would like to know how would I go about to use the
s-video and tv-out. I just need some clarification on if the actual app
would take care of loading up the s-video interface and tv-out interface
or if it is the actual video card driver(Xfree86?).

Thanks for any help in advanced and if it isn't too much trouble, can
you also cc: you rhelp to my e-mail?
