[UbuntuDallas] Video issues

My name is Juan and I'm relatively new to Ubuntu. Although I have had
some great results with Linux, I have also had my fair share of
frustrations. Having said that, I'm not going back to WIndows. The main
difficulty I've had with Linux is that I have not been able to get my
video sources to work properly. Particularly, I have a Hauppauge
WinTV-HVR-950 that used to work great with WIndows XP, but I have not
been able to make it work with Linux. I have researched this issue to
death with no positive results. I thought that
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-HVR-950 would have the
answer, but no luck.

I think that somehow Ubuntu has my video sources mixed up. When I tried
to open XSane to scan an image, it would pick up the TV card, but when I
went to Kaffeine to choose a TV card, I would see my scanner as the
video source. Also, when I open Cheese Webcam, it my webcam doesn't
work. Could it be that all of these are USB connections and Ubuntu
doesn't detect them automatically? Any ideas? I have been stuck with
this for months now. I would greatly appreciate any help with this.
