I want my Linux on TV.

Post by Charles Connol » Sat, 25 Sep 1999 04:00:00

Linux supports my video card "ATI Pro Turbo PC2TV" as long as I am using
a VGA monitor. But it will not support TV, Composite or Svideo out.

X-windows support that is.

Is anything being done to remidy this oversight ??

1. Wanting to control IR equipment with Linux(TV, VCR..)

I've been getting my Linux world close to how I want it.
There are only two things left.
A really good Vmail system (ability to have Vmail boxes,
and have the system react to certain conditions [paging, or
delivering messages]).
The other thing is to have my Linux system control my
TV, VCR, CD player, etc.
Does anyone know of a solution for this?  Either one of the
motherboard based ports, or something home built (or even bought).
