Re: Video capture support on Linux.
From my understanding and basic research, there's VIVO functionality using rivatv kernel module, BUT, support stops at the 5200 cards, so Moderators, please don't point there and say "use that", because it's in an unusable state at the moment. Not to mention that it's only been tested on x86 architecture, us amd64 users (a growing number) cannot use that driver with any kind of reliability even IF our cards were supported.
I have a 7800 GT here, and more than enough VHS to digitalize than my hard drive can contain, so this poll IS relevant, and while nvidia opening up the i2c interface is nice, it's not always enough. The folks over at rivatv could use a bit of help, imo.
