Freecom DTV
« on: September 11, 2008, 09:32:43 AM »
I know its highly unlikely but would it be possible to run a Freecom digital TV receiver through the onet? obviously it would involve taking a machete to the program and I highly doubt the processor could take it but could it be possible? 

or failing that any linux based program with similar functionality?

Hi i got daughter the green Elonex onet+ and i have sling player installed on all the PC's in my house and also my phone. I've just come across this,

http://www.slingcommunity.com/article/17253/How-To-Run-SlingPlayer-on-Linux-OS/

I may try install it and see if it runs on the Elonex one. Has anyone else tried to put slingbox on the Elonex one?

I'll post my results later and let you know.

Just read how to install on Linux, looks like it'll be to complecated for the Elonex one t+ to work.

Unless anyone on here think it could work let me know.

the elonex system uses different install files then most linux systems
Elonex OneT + Software hacks + 4Gig SD card

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I've been wondering about getting a TV tuner working. The two main problems I can see with using a digital tuner would be finding drivers and actually playing video (people are having trouble playing low resolution, low bitrate video and digital TV can be anything up to 720x576 and ~8Mbit/s).

I wondered if it might be more feasible, at least as a starting point, to get an analogue tuner working. I have a Hauppauge WinTV USB, which is pretty old and so should work on lower spec hardware (according to their website http://www.hauppauge.com/html/usb_data.htm it should run on a 166Mhz processor). I've even found what look like Linux-compatible drivers for it here http://usbvision.sourceforge.net/index.php?page=device, but the website is broken and I can't access the list of supported devices. At the very least these drivers would need to be recompiled, and I bet there would be more to it than that. I have very limited experience of Linux, and even less of writing or recompiling drivers, so perhaps someone with more experience could suggest what I need to do next?
