I have a Hauppauge WinTV Go but it uses the BT878 video capture chip instead the newer CX capture chips which is the new models. The modules for the CX chips are still new. I think you got the newer models.

Remove the modules by doing "modprobe -r bttv btcx_risc tvaudio videodev" as su or root. Then type "modprobe bttv tuner=x" as su or root. Specify a number in place of x. Read CARDLIST.tuner in the kernel documentation directory. Also make sure bttv and tuner lines in modules.conf or modprobe.conf is disabled for now. You will have to do trial and error to find out which tuner works best for you.

In my previous post, I said you have to specify a tuner if the module bttv or tuner can not find out what tuner model you have. You will not hurt the tuner if its wrong. It will just not receive the TV signals, but the composite connector will work without the tuner. I think my PVR-250 uses the same tuner, so it would be tuner 39.

Are you sure that your video capture card has BT878 or does it have CXxx88 chip. To verify this, physically look at the video capture card.

Where on the card would I find which video capture card is used? I see NTSC/NTSC-J 48132 Rev K168, but I do not know how to relate that to a tuner.

I am using SUSE 9.2 Pro 32-bit. I have installed rpm from http://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/apt/suse.../RPMS.MythTV/. I have nearly everything working for mythtv.

I must be missing something because the makefile2.6 says no targets when I tried the ivtv-0.2.0-rc3c and ivtv-0.3.2b sources.

I do not have a working /dev/video, video0 or video1.
***This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.8-24.10-default)
can't open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available

The YaST2 Control Panel does list the PVR-350 in the hardware list, so it is plugged in
YaST2 can set the tuner, I have not found one that works.

dander062, I'm confused what video capture card model are you talking about. Are you talking about PVR or WinTV because they are two different kinds of capture cards that uses different chips. If is a PVR model, you should create a new thread or search a thread that is similar to your problem.

The real model for the tuner is under the huge sticker on the tuner module. Though when peeling off the big sticker, a little sticker will be underneath and stuck to the bigger sticker. Usually its located at lower left corner of the tuner module.

Sorry for the confusion. YaST2 describes it as "Happauge WinTV PVR."
Peeling the sticker I see LG. The small sticker (reading backwards) says:
TAPE-H081F

Sorry, search for other posts that describes about ivtv and pvr capture cards. This thread is for WinTV capture cards. You can make another thread and describe your problem in detail if neither of the posts that you search are not similar to your problem.
