Analog card without hardware MPEG encoder

Added by ruud - over 10 years ago

Hi,

trying to help John over at the ClearOS forum to get his tv card working with tvheadend.
He is the owner of a Pinnacle PCTV 110i: this is a analog (pal) card without hardware mpeg encoder.
We see that the drivers for the cards are loaded (lsmod | grep saa) but tvheadend skips the card with the following warning:

[WARNING]:v4l: /dev/video0: Device lacks MPEG encoder, device skipped

I am know wondering if this type of card (analog, no hardware encoder) is supported by tvheadend.

Can somebody share their wisdom on this?

regards,
Ruud.
