Description Tony Arie Kolev 2008-08-20 08:47:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Totem is built without TV-out option enabled.
After review of gnome's bugzilla reports a developer redirects users to distributor.  
Additionally he suppose to build binary with --enable-nvtv option.
I followed the advise and found that even when option enabled, still no TV-out is operational.
when building the package configuration script checks for NVTV and did not found it.
I searched Fedora repository for nvtv packages - no one exists.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Binary package do not have the option enabled.
When building from source package.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uvh Downloads/totem-2.23.2-5.fc9.src.rpm
2. cd /root/rpmbuild
3. vi SPECS/totem.spec (change --disable-nvtv to --enable-nvtv)
4. rpmbuild -bb SPECS/totem.spec
Actual results:
TV-out options are non operational (disabled in grey)

Expected results:
TV-out options are enabled and operational.

You need to install nvtv's development packages before recompiling.
Comment 2 Tony Arie Kolev 2008-08-20 10:02:41 EDT
Ok, that is a problem - no nvtv packages found on Fedora's site!
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2008-08-20 10:15:53 EDT
I'm afraid I can't do much about that. As far as I know, nvtv doesn't work with newer cards, and is mostly obsoleted by newer TVs having digital inputs.

If you have an older card, and a TV without a digital input, you might want to contribute to Fedora, and get the library packaged and uploaded:

These are the instructions for packagers wanting to join in:

I'd advise you to test that it works with your setup first though...
