peppermint 7 and wintv card

Postby gnuuser » 04 Jul 2017, 02:36

I recently acquired a lenovo think centre from work that quit
replaced the power supply, installed a quad core processor and maxed it out with ddr (8 gig of ram)

and holy crap that thing is fast

installed a wintv pci card and ran terminal lspci -tv (to display all pci cards)
apt-get libdvdcss -pkg and libdvb -pkg, once those completed i downloaded the tvtime app from the software centre

lo and behold works flawlessly with both tvtime and flv media player. :jackpot

now the wifey can watch her soaps on the pc and copy her vhs home movies to dvd (many of those home movies are irreplaceable) :s
the only pictures she has of her mom and dad (both deceased a long time ago)

miracle (mere-ack-ull) :
the aspiration of the indigent, the expectation of the indolent, and the inspiration of the ignorant.

Im so old even dirt was my apprentice!

I love those good old boxes you can only replace parts and have them "forever"

In general Lenovo seems to be very Linux compatible and good quality. We don't want those pics and videos to disappear.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
