My tv-card is connected to my soundcard by means of a cable. I have a dual boot system with windows, and there it works fine. I saw something on the mailinglist of kdetv about using kmix and kamix. I'm gonna try that. But the problem I'm facing at the moment is that I can't watch anything at all. The tv-card isn't listed in the devices menu anymore. I haven't got any idea how to get it back in there. I tried several things now, but nothing seems to work. I get the error message that /dev/video0 doesn't exists. But that's not true, because I can see it when I go to /dev.
But thanks for the tips.

I had the same problem with my new TV card some months ago. i spend many time without results... i do not know exactly how such a device work the first time. A friend tells me that the sound is not handled by the TV card but by the sound card and that i need to connect the two devices with a cable between line output of the TVCard and line input of sound card !!! it was so trivial ! Is that your problem ?

Yesterday I did a clean install of Suse 9.1. My tv-card (Pinnacle PCTV) did get recognized properly and I could watch television on my pc. The problem I had was that I didn't have any sound. I tried different sound settings from the configuration panel in kdetv, but it wouldn't work.
This morning when I turned on my computer I couldn't watch tv anymore. The appropriate device (bt878) was no longer in the list under "Devices" in kdetv. I removed the card from the configuration center and added it again. When I tried to scan for channels I got an error message saying that /dev/video0 doesn't exist.
How can I fix it and how do I get sound?
