Dude as you mentioned your problem in PM i told you that you must have kernel source installed in order to compile software.

I am terribly disappointed in you. you should start buying tv cards and start putting them in pcs, laptops with slackware to show the world how good mtv looks on it. do it immediately.

never heard of one with a slot. but who knows!
i am interested in buying a tv tuner card. what should i get


when i bought. and it was a couple of years ago. there were two.

1. Pixelview: it is ok while viewing tv. but when you want to recoed stuff, its file size is huge. very little clip may take lots of MBs.

2: Pinnacle PCTV/PCTV PRO : was very nice. its a german company basically. and its recorded file size can be compared exactly like (a ~5 minute VCD song takes 40 MB )
this is the one i have. it has a Conexent 878 A Fusion chip.

PCTV PRO has FM radio also.
--------------------------

but now. i've heard that there are cool MSI cards with better chips. although i don't know about their support in bttv driver.

before buying check which chips latest bttv driver supports.

have you used mythtv? here is a list of resolutions it supports for recording.

do your cards support mpeg-2 hardware encode/decode? that will speed up file compression immensely.

thanks.
