ATI TV Wonder VE



Hello everyone,

I just got an "ATI TV Wonder VE" TV tuner and video capture card!

With redhat 8 and redhat 9 I have the same problem. The audio continues to play after I "quit" the "xawtv" program.

I set up the /etc/modules.conf file to correctly identify the card and turer type. Or so I think...

Here is what I added to modules.conf:

alias char-major-81 bttv
options bttv        card=64
options tuner       type=2

Before I run xawtv here is a list of my loaded modules:

As you can see the the bttv module is still stuck in the soundcore module. So I did a "rmmod -a soundcore" twice to get it out of the soundcore module and here is the list of the loaded modules after issuing this command twice:

See! I am back to what I started with! Is there any way to make it quit the program by issuing the "q" command without having to manually unload the bttv module from the soundcore module?

My soundcard is a "CM8738" which is using the cmpci module that I had to manually setup because redhat's kudzu didn't automatically pick it up. I wonder if this is part of the problem because whein I use mplayer I have to adjust the sound through kmix volume control instead of using the volume control on mplayer which actually controls the volume through "pcm". 

Also I was wondering if it could be a new tuner that ATI is using that is different than earlier models of the other TV Wonder boards.

Any reply with any information of suggestion will be definitely appreciated!

Sincerely,

Michael von Lehe
