ATI All-in-Wonder RageII+ missing TV in MPlayer
Have ATI All-in-Wonder RageII+ card. It plays and records TV well in Win98, using NTSC canada-cable.
Have added Mark's MPlayer to Puppy107. Radio3 plays well; AVI video and audio files play well, although video is blue-tinged. But I cannot get TV.
When MPlayer starts, it gives "Error! seek failed". Should there be a TV interface to change and tune channels ?

You need extra drivers to support the TV-input feature of your All-In-Wonder card - from the GATOS project http://gatos.sourceforge.net/
I think that the ati.2 drivers are overlay enhancements for the Xorg driver used for viewing tuner output, and the "km" (v4l) and "v4l2" drivers are video capture drivers for recording tuner streams to hard drive.
I just tried to compile the ati.2 CVS source against Puppy's xorg 6.8.1 but it failed, however there are precompiled xorg files here which might work - http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12629
Download the "ati.4.4.0: X.org 6.7.0 driver".
It might also be worthwhile adding Mark's ATI DRI-enhanced xorg drivers http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=5244
... before overwriting some of these files with the ati.2 files I mentioned above.
