I installed several days ago as a replacement to my Leaddtek WinFast
TV2000 XP Deluxe card, which I've been using successfully for many
DV2000 card also from Leadtek. Suse 9 doesn't recognise it, and the
had for the Deluxe card won't activate the new card.
The new card uses the Conexant CX2388X series chipset, and the scan of
its innards produces the following info:
Device Identifier (spec) : 91680
Device Identifier : 100352
Sub-Vendor identifier : 69757 (ie, LeadTek)
Unique key : 60go.TTV2ZT_l+r4
Vendor Identifier : 70897 (ie, Conexant)
Old_unique_key : fbl_x.TTV2ZT_l+r4
I've looked in the file CARDLIST in the documentation for bttv but I
cannot immediately see anything there to get this card working.
I've also Googled re the Conexant chipset and found that a number of
tuners are using it, and for some time now so it isn't a new chipset
which suddenly appeared on the scene.
Support at SuSE suggest that I post a message here for help, and could
also try using the "default" kernel 2.6.4 (which they don't support) -
I've looked in the directory for the Mantel kernel build and can see 2
versions of the default kernel as well as 2 versions of the source rpms
and don't know which I should download (I guess I'll also have to
download the source code to be able to compile the kernel to fit my
current setup, right? Or is it only the source code I need to compile?).
Any help re this problem greatly appreciated.

I am turning one of my Suse boxes into a video editing-movie/dvd
creating box.. at least that is the current plan
I am looking for information about the best semi pro sound cards you
might recomend, along w/ "if money is no object" recomendations. (
Might as well have an idea how high the bar is . IT helps purchasing
decisions in a peicemeal setup sometimes.
The box we are building upon is a "purpose built polywell, which has
been rebuilt by them several times, now Athlon 1700 ( xp) although I
expect it wont belong before the asus board gets tossed for soemthing
that could handle several athlons.
Got 1.5gig ram on it... presently an nvidia video card which is
already for the bin , I am sort of looking at a topline ati or matrox ,
since the video cards I tend to hand me rounds when new boxes come in
w/ onboard chips etc..
I am still investigating the capture card situation .. prefer to spend
my money on quality especially something that has a Linux positive
company rather than the usual types who are willling to take you money
but don't care to let anyone know they might even *work* in a linux
box. Partially their laziness, and the fact that there is still a
heavy MS thumb on the hardware folks. One hopes they are begining to
see the light , tho.
Sound , however is really important... anyone ever been around film,
animation , anything knows how sound can really help move a story
along, and add a lot to a picture. IF you don't believe it, rent a dvd
of jaws, and turn your lights out and the sound up.. at least til the
dialog take over the picture. W/o that theme and the sound editing, it
was a really average summer flick. Might even go so far as to say
I'm not overly worried about the price of the equipment being the
lowest posible bidder, looking more for the middle range ( which is why
, I guess I asked also about proces of the top kit... Best to know what
the setup is going to take when I get round to building a couple of
these things that by then I'd want ( need) to have top level stuff on.

I'm booting SuSE 9.0 with a boot line with vga=768 and I'm seeing the
penguin and all seems normal. I run fbset and it tells me that I am in the
mode that I suspect. However when I try to run an app that expects a
framebuffer, (i.e. using SDL) it can't find it. This works fine in other
distro's of Linux, but SuSE seems to be doing something that is blocking my
use of graphics at the console. Any clues out there????
Thanks in advance,
I have a problem with kwintv. I can't set the directory. A further try to
select 'Television->Video Clip ...' nothing happens anymore.
Does anyone else has this probs?
May i set the config-file manually? Are there any other tools to record the tv
I use a Haupage, WinTV-Express; SuSE9.0; futher information available.
