Access s-video on p7131H tv tuner
I recently bought an asus p7131H pci TV-tuner solely for the purpose of connecting my Wii to the 24″ monitor I have acquired.
After trying for a couple of hours to access the s-video stream from different players (even the over complicated MythTV) I came across the very nice and simple tvtime.
Installing it was a piece of cake with synaptic
sudo apt-get install tvtime
The “tricky” part was to switch to s-video. And by tricky I mean I had to spent 1 minute to read the man page and figure out I had to use the -i switch
tvtime -d /dev/video1 -i 1
That was it. Now I can enjoy Mario Kart on my pc screen
