WinTV USB with Ubuntu 6.04

I bought a usb TV tuner/s-video/rca input device for my laptop, so that I can get video from DV video cameras and any other DV source straight into Gephex. Installation in Linux wasn't too hard:

First get usbvision:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@usbvision.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/usbvision co -P usbvision

make; sudo make install

Tv time doesn't work, but zapping does:

tvtime:
"Your capture card driver, USBVision USB Video, is not providing
enough buffers for tvtime to process the video."

zapping:
works!

Gephex doesn't know how to change the channels or settings, so the trick is to change things in zapping and then quit and the settings will persist in gephex.
