Yeah, this looks pretty much correct to me except the device name. For me it is /dev/video0. I can do a :

#cat /dev/video0 > test.mpg


and play this file with mplayer or equiv.

Here is a list of the different devices with the card form the IVTV wiki:

MPEG2 encoder device (most people want this)
decoder device for CX23415 cards (tv-out)
audio only output
raw YUV (uncompressed) encoder device
raw YUV decoder output stream (currently doesn't work)
radio device
vertical blank interval (cc and teletext, etc) for the encoder
reproduced vbi data sent to video16
sends data to the tv-out port (CX23415 cards)
framebuffer device

Note not all cards have a radio. Only certain models of the PVR-150 and the PVR-350 have the radio. The PVR-500 is basically two PVR-150s on one card as it has 2 tuner devices.

As for what card to test with, I think that the PVR-150 is a good way to go. They all work the same way and use the same drivers, but the 150 is newer then the 250 and 350 and is the cheapest. - May 14 2007
Actually the driver is open source!!

Hopefully this helps out - May 08 2007
Any chance that you'll be adding support for ivtv cards such as the hauppauge wintv-pvr-150? - Mar 24 2007

This is pretty cool, two comments though.

First: the default should not be 'start hidden'. I didn't know that it was even running at first. I discovered it was quite some time later

Second: Both options on the last conf tab do not work. When they are changed, they reset back to the default 50% and 10 speed. - Jan 18 2007

Two things for you:

1. I am would like to provide the translations for your GUI for English speakers that use this. However I don't know how to do this. I have found the place in qLeoManWidget.cpp where the strings reside, but I'm not sure how to add translations.

2. Would it be possable to let qleo translate words that are marked (pastable with middle mouse buttom) rather then having to ctrl-c the word? This is how ksteak works and it saves a lot of time.

Thank you for a nice app! - Nov 06 2006

i read about your problem at I dont know exactly what your problem could be, but try going to the "src" subdirectory and make there "/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.2.1/bin/qmake" and "make" again.



I tried what you suggested, and qleo compiled correctly when qmake and make were run from the src directory. Thank you. - Nov 06 2006

I'm having trouble compiling qleo-0.2 on SuSE 10.0 I downloaded and installed the latest qt-4.2.1. After I did the following:

tom@linux:~/Desktop/qleo-0.2> /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.2.1/bin/qmake
tom@linux:~/Desktop/qleo-0.2> make
cd src && make -f Makefile

Any Ideas? is there a problem with my qt?

Sorry, I didn't know that I had to click on the RSS link to get it into subscribed channels...

I wanted to do this with DemocraceTV and clicked on the "Attack of the Show - Subscribe" Link at the top of the page, and instead of getting subscribed to the feed, I simply got the RSS text in the window.

OK, I just downloaded the latest tarball (as of 05-MAY-2006 10:43pm EDT) and when I open it with Ark I can see two files called KatchTV/MANIFEST and two of every .py file in the tarball. It extracts fine with only showing the error.

When I download a Video from the 'Subscribed Channels' I can watch it no prob, however when I download the 'Channel Directories', say ZENcast, I only get gibberish on my screen after the download is complete. It looks like it is loading the video data as text instead of loading it into Kaffeine. - May 01 2006
This seems to have done the trick. It was when beginning the downloading of a new video that was part of the "Channel Directory" but not part of the 'Subscribed Channels' list. The GUI would stay frozen until the download was complete
