http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I hope someone can help with this. I am trying to get an ATI Theater HD 750 TV stick to work. It is a hybrid analog / FM radio / HD digital TV receiver. When I place it in a USB port, the system detects the device: Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0438:ac14 Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. dmesg gives the following: usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7 usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0438, idProduct=ac14 usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 usb 1-1: Product: Cali TV Card usb 1-1: Manufacturer: AMD usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 1234-5678 usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice lspci gives the relevant message (for USB 2.0 compatibility): 00:03.3 USB Controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] USB 2.0 Controller lsmod gives the following: videobuf_dvb 5952 0 videobuf_dma_sg 10356 2 cx8802,cx88xx videobuf_core 14048 4 cx8802,videobuf_dvb,cx88xx,videobuf_dma_sg videodev 30160 5 ivtv,tvaudio,tuner,cx88xx,v4l2_common v4l1_compat 12164 1 videodev dvb_core 73872 1 videobuf_dvb nvidia 7084800 26 i2c_core 23392 11 ivtv,tvaudio,tuner,cx88_vp3054_i2c,cx88xx,i2c_algo _bit,v4l2_common,videodev,tveeprom,nvidia,i2c_sis9 6x video 19088 0 output 2468 1 video However, xawtv gives the message: xawtv This is xawtv-3.95, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.i686) xinerama 0: 1400x1050+0+0 WARNING: No DGA direct video mode for this display. can't open /dev/video0: No such file or directory v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such file or directory v4l: open /dev/video0: No such file or directory no video grabber device available So I am wondering what other modules need to be installed for this to run under Fedora. I understand /dev/video, /dev/video[0-4] are the analog video inputs, while the digital video will be in /dev/dv* Is there anything else I need to install? (HowTos)
