I have a TV card in my PC and after many tries, I am still not able to use it.
My card name is DTECH Easy Tv Capture. I bought it in Thailand few years ago. It was very simple to install it in windows (at that time I did only use windows) so I did bought 3 of them (in all my PC's) . Now I have already installed Linux on 2 of my PC's (and sold the 3rd computer). I have tried many times to get these cards to work on my Linux. I have search the Internet for solution but haven't found for this card. I did then gave it up but now I need it (my mother in law is staying with us temporary because of the floods in Thailand and then I need to be able to watch the news in my room, far away from me mother in law). I have spend 3 days (and some nights) trying but I am still like in the beginning.
Sometime I can get the tuner to work (in terminal tvtime-scanner) but when I then open the tvtime I cannot get any channels and scanning will not find any (just blue screen). I am little desperate.
There is impossible to find any info for this card, there is a sticker over the tuners cover and trying to peal it of to see the manufactures sticker will just destroy the manufactures sticker.
I have found some info's about my card. It is Phillips saa7130
I have found some info's that I don't understand but maybe it helps
Is there any possible to use this card in Linux??
