  1. Good day mga ka PHCorner, simpleng guide lang 'to kung paano ko napagana yung TV Tuner card ko sa Linux box ko running Linux Lite with 3.8.0-34 kernel Please or Register to view links , at yung TV Tuner card [​IMG] na gamit ko ay Lightwave PCI TV Card Tuner.. with a few simple commands you can watch your favorite koreanovela or local news while chatting, coding or browsing the net!.. eto ang simple step by step na ginawa ko.

    Note: you will need terminal to run these commands.

    step 1: open terminal by pressing ctrl alt t on your keyboard then type
    sudo apt-get install tvtime

    step 2: once tvtime is installed don't open it yet.. let's focus on the terminal.. now type again..
    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134_dvb

    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134_alsa

    sudo modprobe -vr saa7134

    sudo modprobe -v saa7134 card=21

    kahit copy paste nyo yung commands na'to sabay-sabay ok lang! ;-)

    step 3: type tvtime-scanner let it run 'till it finished scanning all the channels available.

    step 4: type tvtime!.. seat back relax and enjoy watching tv on your linux box!

    Note: make sure your usb or pci tv card tuner is supported by Linux and feel free to visit this website for more help! Please or Register to view links

  7. malinaw naman bossing.. depende sa signal o reception ng antennae mo yung sakin kasi ikinabit ko dun sa antenna namin na nasa bubong ng bahay.pero di ko pa na-try sa windows kasi linux lang ang os ng desktop namin.. but i am pretty satisfied naman po.
