I have a tv+radio card (Xtreme 98 from AimsLabs which have closed ;-)).
Installing redhat does not seem to add support for this (all versions from
6 to 7.1). And I have never had any success working it with the precompiled
modules that came with the kernel.
What I did every after update/install, was to download the latest bttv
install the kernel sources, compile bttv and use that. At least the tv
worked that way.
Now that I have installed 7.1 with XFree 4.0.3, I was wondering if I could
anything better. I know that things like video4linux and the new XFree
XVideo (????) exist, but how I can use them? I have visited the XFree86.org
and red informations about these but I am not sure how I can set things up.
Although in my X server the v4l extension gets loaded, nor xawtv neither
work. Is the a tutorial/other info about these?
