how to change tuner number from command line?


Hello

I have PixelView Play TV pro and try to install it in Aurox 11.0.
All I get in xawtv is blue screen.
I'd like to change tuner number.
I have tuner number set to 37 and I don't like it.
But I have it in modprobe.conf so if I want changes to take effect
I have to restart computer. How to change tuner number from
command line?.

Cheers

that's assuming you are using the bttv driver of course....

When I type
rmmod bttv

I get

ERROR: Module bttv is in use by bt878

Nothing changes (dmesg printout) when I issue this command:
modprobe bttv -o card=38
(setting in modprobe.conf is 37)
Dmesg still shows card number - 37.
The same is with tuner:
modprobe bttv -o tuner=23
Dmesg still shows tuner - 5.

rmmod bt878 as well... didn't think that was split into a seperate module... you might need to apply the modprobe to bt878 instead of bttv too then.
