What app can i watch TV on

Hi I'm a newby.

I have a freeview TV card and want to know what is the best application for watching TV on my Fedora 5 installation?

Is there one built into Fedora for example?

Or will I have to download one and "try" to install it?

FFTV sounds like what you may be looking for.

tvtime and xdtv for simple viewing. These are available from some repo which I cannot remember at this time.

mythtv and freevo if you wanna setup a HTPC.

I prefer mythtv myself.

EDIT: Meant to add this - do a google search for the bold part and fedora.

I wasn't going to recommend mythtv quite yet - didn't want to scare them away. You're right though, it's the best one out there. I just finished building my third mythtv box and it's finally working just the way I want it to. I knew there was another app I'd used, just couldn't remember the name. Thanks. bg

tvtime is available from the core repository, as root:

# yum install tvtime

-------------------------------------------------

xdtv will require that you do the following instructions as root.

My only change would be to change enable=1 to enable=0.

That would mean that for the yum command you would need to add the following option --enablerepo=xdtv

------------------------------------------------------------

For freevo and mythtv, you will have to hit the net and do a lot of reading up. However Jarod Wilson's MythTV HOWTO is very good.
