How to set up kozumi ktv-01c in Fedora

In order to setup this card, you have to add these parameters to /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf

cat << EOF > /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
options bttv pll=1 card=120 radio=1 tuner=38 remote=1 bttv_verbose=1 gbuffers=4
EOF

Then, reinitialize the appropriate module:

# rmmod bttv; modprobe bttv

Install tvtime that is my recommended program to watch the TV.

# yum install tvtime

Configure tvtime with your norm (in my case PAL-Nc) and scan for channels.

$ tvtime-configure -n PAL-Nc
$ tvtime-scanner

Run tvtime from your GNOME/KDE menu or running ‘tvtime’ .
For others linux distributions, like ubuntu the procedure may be similar.

Para configurar esta capturadora, primero tenemos que configurar los parámetros en /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf

cat << EOF > /etc/modprobe.d/bttv.conf
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
options bttv pll=1 card=120 radio=1 tuner=38 remote=1 bttv_verbose=1 gbuffers=4
EOF

Luego, recargamos el modulo:

# rmmod bttv; modprobe bttv

Instalamos TVtime, que es mi programa preferido para ver TV en la PC.

# yum install tvtime

Configuramos tvtime con la norma correspondiente para nuestro país. Argentina es PAL-Nc

$ tvtime-configure -n PAL-Nc
$ tvtime-scanner

Listo! ahora podemos correr tvtime desde una consola o desde el menú de GNOME/KDE.
Para otras distribuciones de Linux, como Ubuntu, el procedimiento debería ser similar.
