trying to get tv capture card working in g mx linux

#1 Post by galaxysurfer » Thu Sep 20, 2018 6:59 am

I have a few Hauppauge dvr cards that currently work in win 10 but I would like to stop using win10 & switch setup over to linux. Unfortunately Hauppauge only contracted a 3rd party developer to get drivers working in ubuntu. I am not a fan of ubuntu. This means to access the right drivers & firmware I need to be able to work with ppa which is a no go for users of a pure debian based distro. Do I have any options that will work without having to buckle & go over to ubuntu distro? I currently have Hauppauge WinTV 2255 & WinTV Quad which are basically dual 2255 cards but each has its own unique drivers.

The drivers included in kernel only are active for dvb not atsc as is needed for me.
