PostPosted: Fri 03 Jul 2009, 20:56    Post subject:  Ati rage128 All-in-wonder
Subject description: Can TV-in work in Puppy?
 

Help wanted.

HW: PIII Coppermine, 533 MHz, 192 Mb, Ati, Rage128 All-in-wonder AGP (I'm very well aware that it can be regarded as "a bit dated" but, this is my main (modern) machine).
Code:
sh-3.00# pcimods --list
01:00.0 030000 1002:5246 DISPLAY.VGA <> () 1002:0068


In WinXP, Ati's TV-program runs absolutely flawlessly, displaying all 16 analogue TV-channels,
and PowerDVD plays DVD:s perfectly, no missed frames whatsoever, like watching it on the telly.

However, in Puppy (tried it in 2.16, 3.01, 4.12 4.21 and 2.14X4) I cannot get analogue TV to work, and playing DVD:s using the default media player is not a viable option (let alone, that in 4.12 DVD:s play rather well; I just miss some functionalities from PowerDVD), since video output seems to rapidly play, freeze, play, freeze ... (stuttering?).

In order to view TV from the Ati analogue TV-In, the gatos-project tells me to install XFree86, version 4.1.0 or higher and then install an ati.2-driver compiled for this version of XFree86, and finally to install avview.

Isn't installing XFree86 4.1-4.3 a total downgrade of xorg-7.1-7.3 of puppy's?

Anyway, I've tried to install the gatos-project ati.2-drivers for my card without success.

I've tried what is recommended in the recent posts on xawtv, and old Ati-cards, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=44166 and http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=19918 (and links contained therein)

MAKEDEV-V4L.sh makes the nodes without errors, v4l-info outputs that it cannot open /dev/video0.

Is there any use in my pursuing to get analogue TV, and non-stuttering DVD-playing, in Puppy, with my HW???

Grateful for answers/
MHHP

That same subject is currently under discussion here -

Forum member drcode is currently troubleshooting the genericv4l driver.
You could join in the testing process. If so, please post in that thread.
The only difference in your situation is that your Xorg driver should be "r128".
In fact, it's worth checking this. Because if your Xorg driver is "vesa" that would explain your poor video playback performance.
Please see my comments about DVD playback performance here -

Your system is slightly better than the minimum requirements for DVD playback.
