I've got Hauppauge WinTV HVR-980 reported by lsusb, says 950 on the case, comes with a dongle that connects RCA plug output on the receiver to a port on the side of the 950:
(Mine is a plain "950", no "Q", maybe older, maybe different capabilities, idk)
I've had this tuner working for over-the-air channels, using Kaffeine. What I want to do is use it as a capture device, which is hinted at on the internet but documentation is scarce. It passes video from the HR24 as the Composite 1 connection in various softwares but I can't see it in Kaffeine, xawtv and tvtime freeze, I have yet to hear the audio, even in the Windows Movie Maker program, when booted there.
I have made a recording (no sound, again) with something like the following, from a YouTube tutorial:
Code: Select all
$ mencoder -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:\vhq:vbitrate=6000 -oac mp3lame -lameopts br=256: -ffourcc DIVX -tv driver=v4l2:norm=ntsc:input=1:adevice=/dev/dsp:width=720:height=480 -o test.avi tv://
Thrashing about with various softwares has led to, mainly, program crashes, no sound, reports of the device (hauppauge) not responding.
My thought is someone has solved this puzzle, perhaps with a different capture device or different software, and can teach me.
