Operating System (OS):

All Linux / *BSD, with XFree86 3.3.6 or XFree86 4.x / X.org 6.x, should work correctly with XdTV.
These distributions are known to work well with XdTV:

  • Mandrake 7.2 (with XvBogus), 8.1 and higher
  • RedHat 7.1, 7.2 and higher
  • Suse 6.3 and higher
  • Debian SID
  • Gentoo
  • Slackware
  • FreeBSD (XdTV 1.9.1 and higher)
  • OpenBSD (XdTV 1.9.1 and higher)
  • NetBSD (XdTV 1.9.1 and higher)
Xv support is suggested. verify that your TV card support Xv. If it's not the case, you can also use XdTV without Xv, but the application will work slowly.
