USB TV tuner cards on BB


Has anyone tried to get usb tv tuner cards, like the one below, work with beaglebone black(any distribution - ideally angstrom). Are the necessary drivers available ?

Idea is to get a analog-video signal(this one is from a camera) into the beaglebone. Its for doing some computer vision algorithms on a micro-aerial vehicle.

Any thoughts on this are welcome.

Thanks in advance.


Try looking at SiliconDust tuners: They have a tuner that is controlled by and generates ethernet packets. They have online documentation that explains the packet contents, so I don’t think it would very difficult to write your own BBB software to use them.
