I would think most people would be using TV cards like PVR 350 to capture video, but yeah any feature that is in windows we should get in Linux.
BTW I would expect you would need to build this support into the V4L drivers which support is still patchly even for Video Capture cards.

NVIDIA already sells their highend Quadro SDI line which is officially supported for use on Linux systems. So knowing this why is there a delay with supporting VIVO for their authorized resellers (ie: MSI, BFG, etc). If it's an issue with vendors using different video capture chipsets then either have their vendors standardize or NVIDIA should release their own Geforce graphics card which supports VIVO on Linux. As for the latter I'd be happy to purchase a NVIDIA made Geforce 7900 graphics card that offers VIVO not only for desktop systems but also for highend laptops such as Dell's Inspiron XPS M1710 or Precision M90.

I am prety sure that only this way can you see how big is the demand on capturing support in the driver.

Nvidia wake up!

Default Re: Video capture support on Linux.

Has this been fixed yet? I still can't find any useful information on the web for enabling VIVO features under linux.

I am using dual 6600 GT's on Ubuntu 6.06 64-bit and I really want to be able to stream my tv through the SVideo In on my card. I managed to get it working in windows using the WDM drivers but thankfully I am no longer using windows for my operating system.

So if NVidia are still not offering SVideo-In support in their dirvers, when will they be?

Thanks

Furthermore, if they are refusing to open up access could it not be grounds for a class action lawsuit? Afterall, WDM drivers can access these features, so they have purposefully prevented non windows users from accessing these features by locking them out with their own drivers. Sounds like very dubious legal ground to me.

At the moment rivatv is your only hope but it isn't functioning right now. Second Nvidia isn't required at all to support Linux, let alone support video capturing. So be glad that there are linux drivers, that you can get some form of support and that nvidia made changes to their drivers (i2c support) which can assist rivatv.
