Default When will nVidia give us Video Input in Linux

I am very annoyed that after all these driver updates nVidia still does not support video input in linux. I could care less about the video out function as I use a projector, but of course many benefit from the feature, however, that's only half of the VIVO features on the Geforce series cards. Will nVidia start supporting this or is there some way to make this work with current drivers? I know this can be done, it's just a matter of supporting it.

very respectfully
Nick

I don't know about nvidia video in -- I have a card sitting on the shelf with video in and don't use it -- wish it would have been supported but it wasn't so....

And I know this isn't the answer your looking for...

But I've had great success with the hauppauge pvr 150 and 350 under linux for video in and video out on the 350 for my myth tv box. I originally hoped my nvidia 6150 would support both vga and composite out in a twinview setup -- but as it won't I ended up scraping my pvr150 for a 350 for my mythtv setup.

To my knowledge, Nvidia (at least in the recent past) didn't actually make chips with video-in support. This was a tack-on made by the card manufacturers. So, I would be surprised to see Nvidia support something that.... well... they don't support.

Have you given rivatv a shot? As I remember, it stopped working around the 1.0-6xxx binary driver--the two drivers can't run at the same time. I don't know if this has changed lately, but rivatv should still work if you are willing to use the open-source nv driver. Their forum has mentions of compile errors with newer kernels though.

I already knew of rivatv and it doesn't support newer cards like the 7800, besides even if it did I am not going to continue to change drivers just so I can have video input and then change them again to have 3D. If video out can work, so can video in. It's really not that difficult.

Both can work at the same time these days but its compatibility is a bit limited at the moment.
