I am an absolute novice to linux.
I'll appreciate your help.
I'd like to setup multiple TV tuner cards(FOUR tuner cards to be
exact) in one computer.
The sole purpose of this is to watch 4 different Video signals
SIMULTANEOUSLY, however, no video capturing is needed, in
fact, the computer will not be utilized for any other computational
functions other than simultaneous display of 4 different
Each video input signal will be normal NTSC signal feed(such as
Camcorder line-out) through normal RCA video jack.
One may call it a linux multiplexor.
I hear Mandrake is newbie-friendly, can this be achieved under
What card? tuner card or capture card? Since no tuning or capturing is
needed, either type will do. What card of this sort is
more linux friendly? (Does Mandrake handle USB TV tuners or USB video
What TV tuner program? KwinTV?
Will 4 PCI cards in one computer perform simultaneously without
Any and all possible problems I may encounter in this setup?
Thank you all.
I do not want to use USB cameras or any other cameras that utilize
signal standards other than NTSC.
