nobspangle: That's what I thought, but I didn't want to come across as "clever"

Romulas: The problem is getting working drivers with the vox. For me to even begin using this thing on a linux box I need to be able to extract the firmware from the windows drivers (which I haven't yet been able to figure out). Then I have to compile the V4L2 drivers - which I'm not even sure will work.

I'm willing to try though. I have an old laptop over here running gentoo and I can test until I can modprobe my vox.

PLEASE -anyone- help me extract the firmware from the drivers. This will be the first big step in getting the drivers working (I think).

Page including code to extract firmware from hauppage usb2 drivers File needed to extract firmware is "extract-firmware.pl"

I found this (I doubled the size in M$ paint)
Help I haven't got a clue, Linux scares me and I don't know what to double click. Where's My computer, I don't see any setup.exe and my device manager is plain missing.

If only I could get working drivers I could test cap something
