1. How do you implement a WinTV PVR-150 in Debian? I am sure that the reason I can not get any video working is due to drivers, but I do not know where to go to get them. I have searched, but with no luck.
The WinTV PVR-150, as far as I remember, is using the ivtv drivers. Go to your Core's Pluto Admin website, go to Wizard -> Devices -> Media Directors, and select "IVTV Capture Card" under the "PVR Capture Card" option. This will install the ivtv kernel modules.
2. Same issue with my server sound card (TOS Link) that connects to my Onkyo - No sound, and probally a driver issue with Debian
This may require some manual tweaking if you don't have a suitable option in the same section I mentioned above, a little to the right. By manual tweaking I mean "alsamixer" (to unmute IEC958 / S/PDIF output and possibly choose between Coax and TOS Link) and changing the Speaker Arrangement setting in /etc/pluto/xine.conf from Stereo 2.0 to Pass Through.
3. Is there a way to get the blasted interface out of 640x480 to somthing less than very old school? Can you have different resolutions for the monitor and the TV when on the same media server?
From the same page, a little more to the right of the previous options, you have a "Set resolution & refresh" button that you can try.
