    Hello,

    Which TV tuner PCI card should I buy to watch TV on my pegasos II with MoS?

    Which software can I use?

    Troubles, problems with the solution?

    I have a Voodoo3 3000 AGP.

    Czek.

    The software used was visionary.

    I have some wintv card too...

    But long ago I heard that there are wintv cards with 2 different chipsets, compatible one and incompatible one...

    Better make sure you can return the card, if it doesn't work!

    I've got a Lifetec LT9415 wich works well with Amithlon tv and Visionary and I can use the radio tuner with RadioX.
    I've tried two different Hauppage Wintv cards but they didn't work.

    One thing that bothers me about Amithlon tv is the ugly yellow border when I watch tv fullscreen.

    I'm started to wrote my own programm for capture video on Pegasos with bt8x8 pci cards. Now it can
    capture colored PAL/SECAM video. You can watch frame capture examples on english or russian page.
    And download latest version.

    Wow! That is excellent. Thank you so much. Can you please provide more technical details of the program. i.e its capabilities? Does it capture to HD? Does it work for NTSC? What cards have been tested? etc etc

    Beware of these cards! My one doesn't work on MorphOS. AmithlonTV can't tune at all and Visionary produces only b&w picture without sound. RadioX also doesn't play anything and can't find any station. Currently i use the card in Linux only.
    In addition, its receiver is a CRAP. It's terribly weak. It even can't capture all channels which my TV set shows (TV and Peg are connected to the same antenna).

    I am using a WinTV-Go with BT878. Works perfect with AmithlonTV.

    The BTR_8x8 is a program for PCI video capture cards using the Bt8x8 family of video decoder chips. The project was begun 13.12.04. In which I has used my two years' back experience of writing the similar program under QNX4.

    Does it capture to HD?


    It's not problem, but I not yet wrote this bit of code. The problem is in absent GUI for starting capture or configure format of saved file.

    Does it work for NTSC?


    After selling my Amiga I lost NTSC source for test this mode, but I will add all standarts in next versions. Now program just understand PAL/SECAM B/D/G/H/I without sound.

    What cards have been tested?


    I have just FlyVideo EZ'98 for testing.
    My betatesters with AverMedia still not reply me about they results.

    AmithlonTV dosn't work with my FlyVideoEZ.
    Maybe because it don't have TV-tuner.

    Yes, AVerTVStudio is built on BT878. But it doesn't work. Probably B&W picture is a result of using SECAM instead of PAL. But sound is still a problem.
