Salam Farrukh Bhai,

Thanks for the reply. Farrukh bhai i did searched alot but almost every where i found ways to install BTTV chipset TV Tuner Cards, i coud not found any way to install cx8800 chipset TV Tuner Card. Because my /etc/hwconf file says that it is a cx8800 chipset Device as mentioned in my first post.

Please help me out in this. I have also installed the same TV Tuner in my windows box it shows Prolink 23880 Video Capture Device.

Please Help me out in this one.

I also need a software to broadcast multiple channels please.
Kind Regards
