Hallo all! I am an amateur astronomer and happy >newbie< fedora16 user. But...things goes bad when I try to connect my old PCVC680K Philips Vesta Pro on my laptop to get astro video of the planets, like I was used to do with the old WinXp based PC: I cannot have the video singnal on my screen through the USB cable. There is some kind of driver or setting that I can tweak?
