hi friends i am a new linux user.I have recently installed Fedora Core 4 on my pc and facing some problems.Plz help me to fine tune my pc. 1.I have Pixel View PlayTV Pro - tv tuner card.But when i try to configure the default tv player in FC4(TVtime Player),it shows no input signal.I have set the tv standard as PAL (which is the one in India) and the frequency table to Europe( Since these are the closest one,and i even tried all other options as well).But still no result.I tried searching the hardware browser provided in linux.It shows two things- Bt878 video capture and Bt878 audio capture device in PCI slots.In short i have tried all things i can do (checking all the configuring options on the menu of the tv player),But no result.I guess if i have to download any linux driver or something for my tv card!!! 2.I have installed mplayer( Since there is no mpg player provided with FC4) but it works in terminal only.When i downloaded the skins from the respective site,they did not work out,even when i placed the skins in `/.mplayer/Skin/ directory.I even created a link to mplayer,named it gmplayer and run gmplayer from terminal.It then messaged that mplayer compiled without gui support.I even tried these options mplayer -skin myskin gmplayer -skin myskin But still no support of gui !!! Is there separate installation for GUI version of mplayer? 3.I have seen some softwares with .tar.bz extension.After unzipping them,they show folders like usr,share,lib etc. So i want to know if i put the contents of these folders in the respective folders at the / ,will the thing work ?
