Hi,

Kernel 2.2 includes decent video support for a lot of modern
TV cards. However I don't see a userland program to control
them in RH5.9

Perhaps "xawtv" would be a good choice - it is GPL licence
and moderately mature.

This will be a powertools candidate.

Comment 2 niles 1999-04-13 20:00:59 UTC
Why not add GRadio as well?  I build the Linux/alpha RPM it's REALLY
small (75k RPM, 23k SRPM) and a nice addition.

I understand program bloat, but if you going include TV stuff you
might as well have the radio stuff too.

tv support is now included in powertools.tv support is now included in powertools.
