I thank all the folks who wrote me directly, but... see below. Devin Heitmueller wrote:
Since you quoted the HVR-950Q as working, I tried one of those. Someone else said the ATI HDTV-Wonder works. Neither do. I tried all of the programs people swore work with these cards: tvtime, xawtv, cheese, and vlc. Mythtv appears to need the whole system tuned to be a pvr, not the intent here, users want to monitor CNN, MSNBC, and similar news or financial channels in a window without needing to get a TV for each seat.On Thu, Aug 6, 2009 at 4:07 PM, Bill Davidsen<davidsen@xxxxxxx> wrote:Though I covered that, the signal of interest is clear QAM and NTSC (analog). I haven't seem any cards for busses other than PCI or PCIe, USB is only on a dongle (AFAIK). If I could pass access to the bus back to a VM I could just run XP under KVM, but that's not exactly supported, either.Well, I'm not sure you really answered the question. What bus type specifically are you looking for? For PCI you can go with HVR-1600 or PCTV 800i. For USB you can get HVR-950q or HVR-1950 if you want an onboard MPEG encoder. There are lots of products which are currently supported. A good amount of this also depends on which distro and version you are interested in (since that effects which kernel it is up to relative to when support was added for products). Have you looked at the product matrices on the Wiki: http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/ATSC_USB_Devices http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/ATSC_PCI_Cards http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/ATSC_PCIe_CardsI was hoping someone would pop up with a solution like a dual mode HDhomerun or slingshot, too much to hope.Might also be nice what your large collection is composed of, since we might be able to get some of them to work.
And after all that I am still at ground zero, not only nothing I would date try to give to an end user, but nothing I want to use myself, tuning by frequencies in MHz, good grief! The kernel loads drivers and makes entries in /dev/dvb and/or /dev/videoN, but none of the software people suggested does anything useful.
Nothing with a driver, unfortunately, and much of it obsolete by this time, ie. driver now but out of production. When the FCC stopped approving non-digital cards a lot of stuff went off the market. I'd go with a mix of analog card and HDhomerun if I had to.Well, the notion of "nothing with a driver" is pretty subjective. We are adding driver support for products all the time, and if you threw out a list of product names they might now be supported or could be supported with minimal effort. Devin
