Suse 10.2 Recognizes the divice and loads the em28xx driver automatically when device is plugged into USB 2.0 port.

Install: mplayer, video4linux2 (v4l2), sox

Successfull commands to start tv-playback:

# sox -t ossdsp -r 48000 -b -c 2 /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp

REM: this will pipe PCTV USB2 audio stream (dsp1) to installed Soundcard device (dsp2)

# v4lctl -c /dev/video0 volume mute off

REM: turns muting of video0 device (PCTV USB2 v4l2 device) off = sound on.

# mplayer -tv device=/dev/video0:amode=0:input=0:norm=PAL:driver=v4l2:outfmt=yuy2 tv://

REM: starts the mplayer with tv playback from video0 with PAL norm. This way i can get audio and video. channels can be swiched with H and K/L on the keyboard when the focus is on mplayer window.

Another possibility to watch TV where audio playback needs no sox, yet channelswitching is buggy:

# mplayer -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0:amode=1:input=0:norm=PAL:adevice=/dev/dsp1:immediatemode=0:audiorate=48000 tv://

command options will be explained in the man pages of mplayer under -tv option
scantv mythtv and kdetv tvtime don't work with the opensuse 10.2 version of the em28xx driver.

Yes,

This works fine.

Do you have the remote working yet?

I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.
