ATI TV Tuners And Linux

ATI TV Tuners And Linux

Post by Philip C » Sat, 30 May 1998 04:00:00



To all those people that were wondering about the ATI All-In-Wonder's TV
tuner and Linux, I have some information.

I wrote ATI asking them why they have not released any information about
the TV tuner in these cards to the Linux community and they basically told
me that we are too small of a community to worry about.


about this (or just show interest in it).

Maybe if enough people ask them about it, them may realize that we are a
bigger community than they think.

I have included one of the messages that I have received from them on this
topic.

Philip,

ATI has not made any announcement regarding if TV features of ATI
All-In-Wonder cards would be supported under Linux operating system.

It all depends how many Computer users use their system and Linux
operating system for multimedia purposes, at the present time users
which use Linux are a very small percentage of users.  To obtain more
information about your inquiry, please contact ATI Marketing Department

Should you require any further information or assistance, do not
hesitate to contact us again.

Please quote your ATI Customer Number, XXXXXXXXX, in any future
correspondence.
