    Default Nova-TD 500 - help needed to get working please

    Hello all, I'm using Opensuse 11.0 and a brand new Hauppage NOVA-TD500 DVB PCI TV-card. Having never used TV cards under Linux before, I don't know where to start - naturally, the driver CD is for Windows as are the instructions!

    Any help or suggestions at all would be received gratefully.
    Many thanks

    Rich

    A useful reference:

    LinuxTV.org - Television with Linux

    Looks like the TD-500 exists as several versions (chipsets). Hope yours is not the recent TD-500 model they describe:

    DVB-T PCI Cards - LinuxTVWiki

    I don't have TV-tuner card experience either, although I remember Linux Format published an interesting article on this topic about a year ago. I'll be following your adventure with this through this thread hopefully.

    Hello and thanks for the reply; yes it IS a TD500, purchased today so will be the recent one.

    Buy Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T-500289 from CCL - Online Retailer of the Year 2008, 2007 & 2006 for laptops, desktops and computer hardware

    Code:
    usb 7-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
    usb 7-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    usb 7-1: New USB device found, idVendor=2040, idProduct=8400
    usb 7-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    usb 7-1: Product: WinTV Nova-DT
    usb 7-1: Manufacturer: Hauppauge
    usb 7-1: SerialNumber: 4032833551
    (taken from dmesg)

    I've been staring at the LinuxTV website all night so far lol; it's late now so I am going to bed but will be picking this up again tomorrow, perhaps fresh eyes are all that are needed
