[mythtv] Couple Newbie Questions -- One Step Closer
Tue, 12 Nov 2002 15:26:51 -0500
I'd suggest compiling your own kernel if you haven't already, it's much
easier IMHO to compile 90% of the vfl/tuner support into the kernel and only
worry about bttv and tv card modules.
Are you up to compiling a fresh kernel? Its not hard.
Important things for my ATI TV wonder...
I2O device support --->
<*> I2O PCI support
Video For Linux --->
[*] V4L information in proc filesystem
<M> BT848 Video For Linux
Character devices --->
I2C support --->
<*> I2C support
<*> I2C bit-banging interfaces
<*> I2C /proc interface (required for hardware sensors) # not sure if
you need this
<*> Sound card support
<M> TV card (bt848) mixer support
Your milage may vary.
