So I have a bunch of these Window$ MCE only cards around. ATSC/QAM/NTSC (note low profile adapter)
"Additional benefits of the Avermedia M780 TV card is that one can watch the Analog channel or the HD channel while recording the other. Alternatively, two channels can be recorded while a program which was previously recorded is watched, all at the same time. Other features of the product include a 32- bit as well as a 64- bit driver support, a stereo sound, Analog TV (NTSC) as well as digital TV (ATSC). It also has a HDTV quality support. It is worth noting that the HDTV will work only if the signal of the TV is HDTV format. Other requirements for HDTV include a VGA card which supports DirectX 9.0c as well as DxVA."
I got it working by first grabbing the firmware and installing mercurial:
apt-get install mercurial -y
apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree -y
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~dheitmueller/ngene3
Lately I have had to get rid of some bad code in ngene3/v4l/firedtv-1394.c so I just
echo > v4l/firedtv-1394.c
This loads up a bunch of experimental drivers.
MythTV then picks it up as DVB DTV capture card (v3.x).
Have not got audio going, but the picture/change is fantastic. I would like some help getting it going right, so we can make this happy. I know there are a gazillion of these cards out there, they were pretty inexpensive for the quality... still are
. Gateway shoved them into their media pc's for a while... so... calling all dingos...
*Mandingo, I will gladly send you a card
