Unhappy Video In/Out

I was woundering how i go about using tv in and out on my ge-force3 gts. I have downloaded xawtv and installed xawtv but am getting errors when i try and run it.

This is xawtv-3.76, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.18)
WARNING: Your X-Server has no DGA support.
can't open /dev/video0: No such file or directory
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such file or directory
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such file or directory
no video grabber device available

I have tryed adding the -c option and changing the device to the following:

/dev/nvidia0 - wrong device
/dev/nvidia1 - Segmentation fault
/dev/nvidia2 - Segmentation fault
/dev/nvidia3 - Segmentation fault

Im sure that there is just some crappy thing i haven't configured. I have tryed running as root so i know there isn't any permission problems.

The first thing you need to use something like TVin are Tvin drivers. When you have those drivers you get things like /dev/video0 which are mapped to the actual hardware.

To get those tvin drivers look at http://rivatv.sf.net
