    A comment.

    When pasting computer commands and such, please use a CODE BLOCK, so
    that the forum software doesn't do silly things like converting URLS to
    tiny urls, parenthesis into smileys, or otherwise hide or alter the
    commands you entered. You get them by clicking on the '#' button in the
    forum editor. See photo

    Try mencoder or vlc.
    F.e.:
    Code:
    mencoder tv:// -o file.mpg
    Normally I would suggest xdtv, which is a fork of xawtv and has recording capabilities (you can even schedule recordings). I build packages for openSUSE as I always preferred that apllication to anything else (including tvtime) for analog TV.

    But unfortunately at the moment recording doesn't work there either, all frames are discarded. I have not found the cause of this issue yet...

    Sorry, I cannot help you more at the moment, as I have no analog TV card here. You have to wait two days.

    I never used MythTV at all though, but apparently you need mysql running, as it seems to use this for its database.

    You have to tune into the correct channel of course.
    You should also be able to use tvtime, xawtv, or whatever to change the channel while vlc is running.

    For mencoder, try something like this:
    Code:
    mencoder tv://E7 -tv alsa -oac mp3lame -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=1000 -o test.avi
    "E7" is the channel, you should take the appropriate one (no idea what you would have to specify for the av input though).
    This line creates an avi video with XVID video (bitrate 1000) and MP3 audio.
    "-tv alsa" is important so that alsa is used for recording (prevents that "Unable to open '/dev/dsp': No such file or directory" error, because OSS support is not activated)
    See also "man mencoder".

    I will try to get xdtv's recording to work again, but I cannot tell how long this will take.
    ATM I have no idea why it's not working.

    I managed to "fix" this now. For some reason _all_ frames got dropped (seems to be a problem with wrong timestamps, I have to investigate this further), I disabled dropping of frames completely for now which makes it working again.

    So have a try:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/xdtv

    It should be sufficient to only install the package "xdtv".
    If you want to have it run in a different language than english, you should install the appropriate libxdtv-i18n-xx package as well.
    Then there are also additional theme packages in the different languages (libxdtv-theme-(aqua|carbone)-xx), if you are not satisfied with the standard appearance...

    Please note, that there seems to be a problem with the OSD font atm, on my system only chinese characters show up.
    Switching on "Xosd" should fix this, you might want to set a different font as well in Xosd's settings.

    If you still have questions about how to use it, feel free to ask...
