This page is a work in progress

I am part way through setting this card up and this will be mostly notes till i finish and clean it up.

firstly this is on ubuntu dapper drake your distro may be different.

i used http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Kworld_NB-TV_100_%28VS-NBTV100%29_CardBus as a starting point

Setting it up in Debian

Add a file /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134 with the following contents:

options saa7134 card=65 tuner=54
install saa7134 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install saa7134; /sbin/modprobe saa7134-alsa

Reload the modules for the card and tuner id to take effect:

rmmod tuner saa7134-alsa saa7134 modprobe saa7134

this should work but other numbers may be better http://lists-archives.org/video4linux/15289-kworld-dvb-t-210-support.html suggests using 81 for card

Ok so now you should have analog tv but I found an interesting um feature of this particular pc it was running a CCTV program called zoneminder and this was stealing the tv card and creating problems

Alternative

This is how I got this card to work on ubuntu 9.04:

~$ sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/options

Options file contents:

options saa7134 card=81 tuner=54
install saa7134 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install saa7134; /sbin/modprobe saa7134-alsa
options saa7134-alsa index=1

This makes it work with kaffeine, the first channel sintonized is always slow, at least for me.

The analog tunner works with tvtime, but it doesn't support alsa audio, so here are the solutions:

I haven't tested composite or supervideo yet, but they may work. Radio is also untested.
