Question Video Out & In, NVIDIA 3132, & LeadTek WinFast A250 LE TD (MyVIVO)

Hi. I have been using this new video card (Leadtek WinFast A250 LE TD (MyVIVO Edition; GeForce4 Ti 4200 with 128 MB) in Windows XP Professional SP1 to understand how its TV In and Out works. So far, they work and I am enjoying these "addicting" features. Now, I would like to set them up for Red Hat Linux 7.2 (compiled Kernel 2.4.19) as well (same system -- I dual boot).

After reading the Linux driver README file from NVIDIA, I noticed the TV output cannot be turned on and off easily like Windows. Did I understand that I have to restart X server to enable/disable this feature? Isn't there a program to control without restarting X server? I don't use the TV output all the time to watch videos and rebooting X server will be a hassle. I also want to keep the TV showing videos (e.g., MPEG) while my monitor is using desktop. Basically, it is like Matrox's dualhead setup.

The documentation said nothing about video in. I have the video card hooked up to a VCR (hooked up to a small TV) so I can capture/record stuff on my computer. I also have the VCR's stereo RCA cable to my SB Live's Line In so I can use my decent speaker setup (Klipsch Promedia). I understand in Windows, I needed to install WDM capture drivers or something. Do they exist for Linux? I do recall seeing something about capture card in Kernel configuration, but I don't think they are for NVIDIA video cards? Is there a Howto guide on how to set this up? I didn't see any information on NVIDIA site and in its documentations.

Thank you in advance.

Thumbs up rivatv

I just installed and played with rivatv. Is this the only driver and program out there for video input?
