I decided to try to install an old Hauppauge PVR-350 in my desktop that is running the latest version of PCLinuxOS. After reading the thread below I also installed a52dec
(which is described in Synaptic as "liba52 is a free library for decoding ATSC A/52 streams."
After connecting a TV antenna to the card I haven't received any over-the-air signals using either TV Time, KDETV or Kaffeine.
Is there a simple solution not involving anything complicated (to me)? I'm probably not up to the task of compiling a kernel or updating firmware!
