Hauppauge hvr-1600 help
« on: September 25, 2016, 06:32:49 am »
Hi!  Any one up on tv tuner cards?  I have now ompletely movd to Linux using Peppermint 7.  I have a hvr-1600 tuner card, which the system sees, but programs like Me-TV or Kaffine don't detect.  I have many home vhs tapes I want to convert to digital.  i have spent a few hours researching but have not come up with a solution.  Any suggestions?

Hi    stevesveryown

I spent a long time doing exactly what you're attempting with both VHS & Betamax tapes and for me this is an area Linux is a little weak in but I assure you perfectly possible with the right hardware

However it would help to start with if you post your inxi -Fz as requested and take it from there

Can you explain what you mean by "the system sees" it ?

Using Hardinfo you can see:
-PCI Devices-
Multimedia video controller      : Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23418 Single-Chip MPEG-2 Encoder with Integrated Analog Video/Broadcast Audio Decoder

Using terminal and command lspci -v you see:
08:05.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23418 Single-Chip MPEG-2 Encoder with Integrated Analog Video/Broadcast Audio Decoder
   Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. WinTV HVR-1600
   Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 20
   Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64M]
   Capabilities: [44] Vital Product Data
   Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
   Kernel driver in use: cx18
   Kernel modules: cx18

But yet Me-tv or Kaffeine doesn't pick up the tuner.
