This is my sandbox. Being a sandbox, everything you see here is a work in progress.

A Few Notes Before you Begin

Before you jump in and make your contribution, please first familiarize yourself with the layout of the site. Doing so will help you to place your information in the right location. As the wiki grows, it takes an increasing amount of effort and discipline to keep it from quickly turning into a tangled mess. So it's up to each of us to make sure the information submitted is easy for everybody to find and access.

If you make a contibution and later find that your submission has been edited or moved to another area of the wiki, please don't feel offended. Everyone understands and appreciates the time and efforts you took, but bear in mind that a factual and well-organized resource for everyone interested in analog or digital TV is the ultimate aim of the LinuxTV wiki.

Submitters should also know that, to keep the information contained in the wiki free, all contributions are automatically licensed under the GNU General Public License GPL. If you wish, you may specify in each case that your contribution is dual-licensed under the MIT License. Please do not reproduce or submit copyrighted works without obtaining the express consent of the owner or its agent.

Lastly, to help keep the wiki free from spam, contributors are required to set up an account and to sign in before they can post to the wiki. (This is a painless process that only takes a few seconds). To sign up an

Examples of User TV Device Hardware and Software Configurations:

Having Trouble?:

TV related items/issues

  • scanning
  • tuning/zapping
  • watching/recording
  • teletex/CC
  • streaming


Just toying

Would like to try to setup a table for the chipsets using templates such that, with using logic to define relevant fields, we have all the data contained in one spot (I guess much like Henrik was doing with the DVB-T USB stuff), but can then parse the info for display in relevant articles, such that there isn't duplication. Present duplication example:

A Sortable List of Chipsets
Vendor Chipset Tuner Analog
Demodulator
Digital
Demodulator
Standard Modulation
Schemes
A/V
decoder
MPEG
encoder
MPEG
decoder
Interface

DVB
support
Linux

Kernel Modules
Firmware Comments
Afatech AF9005 No No Yes DVB-T COFDM No No No Yes USB Yes Yes  ? Yes
  • A combo USB bridge & demod IC


Misc Info & ideas for me:

Colours

  • Web colours
  • v4l --> style="background-color:#006600;
  • DVB --> style="background-color:#6289AB;


Tables


style="color:green; background-color:#ffffcc;"
style="color:#e76700;"
style="background-color:# ;"


Icons wanted:

  • need to find or create a chain link icon for "links"
  • * terrestrial broadcast tower
  • sat dish
  • * pcmcia
  • pci
  • pcie
  • firewire


Special Links
