Hauppauge WinTV-Go installation
« on: January 21, 2009, 07:49:57 pm »
Hi, I found an TV capturing card in one of my old computers. I added it to my LinuxMCE system . I think linux has recognized it. On the card there was a sticker with WinTV-Go and it has a BT848 chip. I run the setup wizard in the orbiter. In the Media wizard it does not show this card as input. I found some information on the wiki but not if I have to do something before this card should be detected. Can someone tell me what steps I need to take or point me to the right wiki page ?

Result out off the lspci -v | less command
00:0e.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt848 Video Capture (rev 12)
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 18
        Memory at e6800000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]

I hope I have the right Hauppage type as there is nothing more on the card as the above and I do not have a box anymore.

You most likely need to setup card in mythtvsetup.
