(Hope this doesn't duplicate -- didn't seem to get posted)
I just discovered pd-extended, and am now playing with live video via a
PCI capture card. Very happy!
But can anyone tell me why running any of the Gem video examples seems
to change my video capture card's mode to some non-PAL setting? (My
camera is PAL). Can I specify this as a default setting somehow?
The OS here is Linux Ubuntu Studio (Hardy). I have a generic BT878-based
tuner/capture card, which reports as follows after typing 'lspci':
00:0e.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video
Capture (rev 02)
00:0e.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture
Many thanks in advance.
