http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello. I'm not sure if the following is an openSUSE specific issue,a motherboard issue, a 64 bit issue, or if it's something else entirely. Anyway... I have a Hauppauge WinTV (BT878) card that I would like to use. I have used this cad before in an older computer, with linux, and it worked fine then, so I'm assuming it still works fine now. The main issue that I have is that I can't change the resolution to (motv, transcode, etc) to anything over 352x240. If I do, I get errors about not being able to dequeue frames and such and I get no picture and/or the program hangs/crashes. Also, I can't get lavrec to work no matter what resolution I set. It crashes with queuing errors as well. In case it matters, my motherboard is an Asus M4A78T-E, I have openSUSE 11.2 64 bit. Any ideas? Thanks, -Peter (Distributions)
