Okay I did a fresh install with everything done by the book.
In BIOS I underclocked my CPU and enable Fast Write
Installed Knoppmyth R5A16
Loaded the firmware files
Used ivtvctl to set the correct signal
Then tried cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/temp1.mpg
Computer Locks Up....
Why does it work in windows and not in Linux? Someone please, any
