Description Chris Evans 1999-04-04 15:35:58 UTC

Kernel 2.2 includes decent video support for a lot of modern
TV cards. However I don't see a userland program to control
them in RH5.9

Perhaps "xawtv" would be a good choice - it is GPL licence
and moderately mature.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-12 19:21:59 UTC
This will be a powertools candidate.

Comment 2 niles 1999-04-13 20:00:59 UTC
Why not add GRadio as well?  I build the Linux/alpha RPM it's REALLY
small (75k RPM, 23k SRPM) and a nice addition.
I understand program bloat, but if you going include TV stuff you
might as well have the radio stuff too.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-08-27 16:35:59 UTC
tv support is now included in support is now included in powertools.
