Note: I'm not aware of the exact name under which this card was sold. I'm just guessing that is WinTV-Radio. If someone knows better, please feel free to move this page and giving it a proper name.

WinTV Model 44914 Rev C121

An analog PCI card from Hauppauge.


Radio In, TV In, Line Out, Composite In, Line In, IR In.


Everything is working "out of the box" except bundled remote control.

It may be necessary to load bttv module with parameter automute=0 if audio is unwantedly muting.

Remote is fully supported by lirc. With v4l-dvb drivers some known changes would need to be done to get the remote working.

Following modification was not accepted by maintainer (change was requested) but it may be applied to source code and recompiled to get this remote to a working state with v4l-dvb drivers.
