Considering purchasing the card.  I'm wondering if
v4l has support for the oboard hardware mpeg compression?

Is it worth the extra money if I'm running a 1.7Ghz system?

TIA

I have a wintv pvr card, and I am using it with linux since the windows
drivers are just _so_ bad.

v4l/v4l2 does work with the card, but only as well as any other wintv
card. The hardware mpeg compression is not supported, and it doesn't look
like it is ever going to be either.

So I cap to massive MJPEGfiles, then convert to either SVCD compatible
MPEG or Xvid AVI, depending on my requirements.

There might be some prospect of a linux driver for the later pvr cards
(pvr250 etc), however these are totally different hardware, so I don't
follow developments too closely.

1. Hauppauge WinTV-PVR

Hello,

does someone successful operate the WinTV-PVR under Linux?
This is a rather new TV card with an onboard mpeg encoder chip.
My old WinTV PCI card with BT878 chip worked without problems
under Linux - I use xawtv.
The new card is identified as a BT878 based card, but the output
is only black and white.
The second problem is: the sound mixer works wrong; the line-in
is always forwarded to line-out.
Does one of you have an idea?

Hans
