My Setup on Fedora 8

Capture Cards

PVR350 (using TV out) PVR150

System specs

PIII 800 384MB RAM

  • Hard Drive 1 - 25GB
** /
** /boot
** swap
  • Hard Drive 2 - 320GB
** /videos


Posted here is my xorg.conf file for the PVR350 with TVOUT. I had to change a few lines between Fedora 6 and Fedora 8 because of the change in the ivtv driver.


  1. XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"

       Identifier     "Default Layout"
       Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
       InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
       InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"


Section "Files"

  1. RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
  2. file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
  3. no need to change the default.
  4. Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
  5. By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
  6. the X server to render fonts.
  1. ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
  2. ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions"
  3. ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
  4. FontPath "unix/:7100"


Section "Module"

       Load  "dbe"
       Load  "extmod"
       Load  "fbdevhw"
       Load  "glx"
       Load  "record"
       Load  "freetype"
       Load  "type1"
       Load  "vnc"


Section "InputDevice"

  1. Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
  2. Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
  3. To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
  4. Option "XkbDisable"
  5. To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
  6. lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
  7. keyboard, you will probably want to use:
  8. Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
  9. If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
  10. Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
  11. Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
  12. For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
  13. Option "XkbLayout" "de"
  14. or:
  15. Option "XkbLayout" "de"
  16. Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
  17. If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
  18. control keys, use:
  19. Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
  20. Or if you just want both to be control, use:
  21. Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
       Identifier  "Keyboard0"
