Usage Information

Video Capture Cards/Devices are used to get the picture from the cable, aerial, or satellite television source into the PC. They decode and capture the video signal from the channel you want to view or record. Most cards/devices include a tuner to capture an specific TV signal. Video capture cards/devices without tuners do exist, but these are used for mainly security DVR's.


Current Plug and Play Capture Cards/Devices with LinuxMCE

Below you will find a running list of Capture Devices that are now Plug and Play with LinuxMCE. I will add more Cards/Devices as time progresses so if you have a Card/Device that is not listed, Please post your card information here. Forum

Anyone within the USA or CANADA please select and use MythTV as your default TV application.

Thanks
