Hi all,
Thanks for all ur reply.
Ok i will try as per u suggested.
and then will be back if any problem persists.

now after inserting the wintv nova-s-plus card.
i tried to run xawtv -hwscan command which will list all the cards
connected.
but for this wintv nova card its showing
Driver = /dev/video0; Device = UNKNOWN/GENERIC
what is this. is that not identifying it since there is no driver, or
someother problem

Thanks and Regards
Thiru...
