Hello, I quit windows not too long ago and have no idea how to install a tv card. I searched the internet but still don't know how any of this works. Here is what I want to know: Would someone please give me a quick run down of the steps needed to install a card. I don't need anything in detail---just the very basics of what, in general, is going on. like 1. install card 2. install v4l-dev, v4l-apps 3. find chipset drivers and install. etc etc I don't know where to begin, as so far what I've read is overwhelming and I can't make out what comes first and what comes after. I want to take this one step at a time and I can't tell if I missed something important.
Start at linux-tv.org. Find a reference for the particular tuner card you have. Follow those references.
If you are using a very recent version of Linux, chances are, the drivers already exist in the kernel. You'll probably need to install some ancillary software, like v4l-apps. You'll need an application to view the TV. I use MythTV, which is a whole Tivo-like system. But again, start at linux-tv.org.
