[MPlayer-users] Capture from ALSA bt87x device

I am trying something "uncommon"(?).
I got a Hauppauge BTTV 8xx capture card, and I spent a lot of money to get
one with this chip that lets You capture audio from a DSP device (e.g.
(Normal/Other capture cards require a loop through cable from the TV card
to the soundcard which does the DSP stuff.)
Therefor I loaded in Kernel 2.4.x the OSS btaudio module (which made nasty
noises because of a buffer related problem (I talked to Gerd Knorr about
this)) and with the preferred 2.6.x kernel the ALSA module bt87x.
So, these things are working on my system:
- Capture from a /dev/video device
- Grabbing audio with "# sox -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp0",
getting the proper audio data
This is what does _not_ function:
- Getting MPlayer in TV mode get the audio
- Getting MEncoder in grabbing mode get the audio.
I should use following commands/options to get the sound grabbed,
# mplayer tv://E10 -tv
or, if I wanted to grab thru ALSA device node I should add following:
# ... :alsa:adevice=XYZ
I tried to figure out how I have to call the device (what to put in place
of "XYZ") but I had no success to find. (Or I didn't understand, "/me
Can anybody assist in this case? Would be happy, and as far as I can tell,
others would be to (searched thru this ML's archive).
Rich people have precise clocks. Wise people have time.
