TV Cards & Webcam

XdTV was designed to use TV cards with BT848/ 848a / 878 and 879 chipsets (BTTV driver). It can also work with a CN878 / 879 as these chipsets are almost the same as Brooktree (Brooktree is now a part of the Conexant Systems, Inc.).

Be careful: support for CN881 chipsets is still experimental. It works with some features disabled like stereo sound. Some color problems can appear. The support for MT2050 tuner is not yet complete and minor color problems can also appear.

These 3 TV card (pictures on your left) are supported by XdTV. (Be careful,  the Maxi TV3 card is known as an Askey TVIEW CPH063 card. This card has the number 38. I suggest you to have a look at Calimero configuration to configure it).
 
XdTV works also with several webcams (like philips ones).
 
To configure the BT8x8 driver you have to modify your /etc/modules.conf file (kernel series 2.4) or your /etc/modprobe.conf file(kernel series 2.6).

With your Mandrake 10.x distribution, you must add the BTTV module inside the modprobe.preload file, if you want to have your TV activated  after every Linux restart.
Here is a /etc/modprobe.conf example file:

options bttv radio=0 card=1 pll=0 tuner=3 gbuffers=4
 
With a Debian (kernel 2.4.x),you will have to create a tv file into the /etc/modutils folder or you have to modify the /etc/modules.conf file. Here is an example:
alias char-major-81 bttv
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options bttv card=10 pll=1 radio=0
options tuner debug=1 type=5
With a Debian (kernel 2.6.x), in the past, modules were loaded through the /etc/modprobe.conf file. The /etc/modprobe.conf file was remplaced by this one:  /etc/modprobe.d/old_etc_modprobe.conf
Now you can configure the bttv driver through this file: /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.
Here is an example:

# i2c
alias char-major-89 i2c-devb
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1
# bttv
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
# Askey TV Capturer
options bttv card=59 tuner=0 radio=0 pll=1 adc_crush=0

Gentoo users can find a file named video in their /etc/modules.d/ directory. They will have to edit it. Next, you will have to launch update-modules command with root right to update your modules.conf or modprobe.conf file and then you will have to reload modules.
 
Last BTTV drivers propose to automatically detect which TV card and  Tuner you use. This detection seems to work great with plenty of cards (based on BT878/879a or CN787/879). With older TV cards (based on Bt848/849) you must add manually all needed options in the configuration files shown above.
