I'm still trying to get my avermedia M103 TV card working.
I have a Philips-Freevents LX3000 PC, on which I’m running PCLInuxOS,
kernel 188.8.131.52.tex3 , this has an Avermedia m103 card installed (it’s
a mini PCI card). The chips used in the card are the same as those used
in the E506,
and very similar to those used in the A16D, however following the
instructions on mcentral.de I seem unable to get TV in XAWTV, TVTime or
The following site has managed to get this card working with the
Can you please offer some advice, a couple of things that I think may be
the problem are
o Do I need to remove the card before I install the experimental code?
until now I haven’t because its under the fan, but will if needs must.
o Do I need to disable the installed V4L modules in the kernel, and then
re-compile the kernel? This seems very scary, but someone on the gentoo
pages did it this way, so I’ll give it ago if necessary
o How do I get the xc3028 to work, there seems to be 3 different
approaches, either download the windows firmware and convert, download
the picnnicale firmware
(http://mcentral.de/firmware/firmware_pinnacle.tgz), or download the
xc3028 firmware (http://mcentral.de/firmware/firmware_v5.tgz) .
Thanks in advance for any help, this is much appreciated, & will
hopefully mean I can stop using Vista.
