    I'm looking threw what I have in my spare parts/equipment bin for a video capture device that workable in Linux. I came upon a “Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR High Definition Personal Video Recorder” collecting dust.

    I've been researching capture devices that work with Linux. And I think I may have lucked out finding this. It seems very well supported under Linux.

    Has anyone tried this capture device with Hyperion?

    My thinking is (If Linux can see the device on /dev/video0/ it “”should”” work fine in Hyperion.)

    Wile I patiently wait for the parts, I came upon a wright up that details a successful pairing of a Raspberry and a HDpvr-1212.

    link to page: dwellertech.blogspot.com/2013/05/raspberry-pi-and-hd-pvr.html

    So it appears to be ok :)
