Recently i installed the new suse linux 9.0 on my computer. The computer has also a pinnacle pctv pci card inside.
The setup detected the card automatically. After playing around with the tv applications (kwintv, xawtv) I noticed, that I'm not able to get all the channels. I considered the channels list from our cablenet. I noticed that all UHF channels and some VHF OSB channels are impossible to get.
I found out that, it has something to do with the driver, because before I had linux on my computer I used windows and there the tv card worked very well with all channels. The cable is also working correctly, checked it with a normal TV.
So I started yast and went to the tv-card section. Here I'm able to select a tuner. The default option, which was selected, is standard tuner. I tried a few, but the problem is that I don't exactly know which tuner device I have. But there was no change to the channels problem.
Today I tried to look for some tuner names directly on the pci card, but I didn't find anything. One one big "chip" there is the pinnacle logo and on one another chip there is "Connexant Fusion 878A".
