    Default Is this Capture card worth buying?

    From dse.co.nz
    Cat #XH6765 (I havent worked out which part to cut from the URL yet ;-))

    It says it supports Linux.
    How much is it supported though...?

    Im currently running 2.4.20-gentoo-r8 kernel, soon to be 2.6 (with V4L2 IIRC?!).

    All I remember is that my bt878+ based card was a pain in the ass and never _actually_ got more than a b/w screen in Redhat 8 (It didnt like 9 - Apparently there's kernel issues since 2.4.20).

    Is it worth the buy, and will you all help me should I screw up? ;-)

    If nobody majorly objects, Im off to buy it tomorrow morning before heading out to help somebody compile the 2.6 kernel :-)

    Cheers


    Chill.

    Yup :-)
    That's the one...!

    Its mainly coz it has Linux support (and isnt based on the bt878 chipset...!)

    Im not sure... Go for it or not?

    I want a capture card, but is this the one?

    Ask them at DSE if it will do what you want. If they say it will and it won't, you can return it. If they don't know I am sure they will take it back anyway. They are pretty good at that sort of thing at DSE.

    Well, Ive bought it... Dunno how the hell to get it to work with the 2.6 kernel... And I really dont wanna have to go back to the 2.4 kernel (I s'pose I could, but that means recompiling the nVidia drvers etc...).

    Has anybody done V4L with kernel-2.6 yet?
