    Default Pinnacle Systems PCTV 800i (PCI Card)

    Yes I have been looking and for some reason I can't get this to work at all in Suse (Or Ubuntu for that matter.)

    Suse 64bit
    Pinnacle Systems PCTV 800i PCI Card
    KDE 4.3

    I am simple trying to get something to scan for channels (ClearQAM.) I tried KdeTV and I am not even sure if I have everything installed that I need to have installed. I think so, from my research so far, but it is not picking up any channels from the cable.

    Also,
    Has anyone had any luck using Pinnacle TV Center Pro with WINE or with a Virtual Box (Or Xen, VMware, etc...) I would like to use it that way if possible.

    Hi
    Any out put from dmesg or hwinfo? Else you could try a scan from the
    command line eg?
    Code:
    scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-NTSC-center-frequencies-8VSB -o zap | tee
    ~/channels.conf

    Hi
    You need to add the firmware (dvb-fe-xc5000-1.1.fw), look at this post;

    I checked YaST but didn't see dvb-fe-xc5000-1.1.fw there. Where can I get it or did I miss something? I do have dvb and lindvbpsi5 installed.

    That one did it.

    I will check it out once I boot back into Suse. I am in XP right now getting AoC set up.
