incorrect TV card


I have just re-installed Mandrake 10, and my TV card is not recognised correctly. I have added the recommended line in /etc/modules as below:

probeall scsi_hostadapter advansys
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
alias eth0 8139too
above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
options bttv gbuffers=8 card=72
options ide-cd dma=1

After booting, dmesg shows this:

bttv0: Bt878 (rev 17) at 0000:02:0b.0, irq: 9, latency: 32, mmio: 0xf5000000
bttv0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC *** [card=0,autodetected]
bttv0: gpio: en=00000000, out=00000000 in=00ffc0ff [init]
bttv: readee error
bttv0: using tuner=-1

The card should be a bttv card=72, can someone tell me how to fix this?

Hi Penguin4

Thank you for that. The short answer was to do:

modprobe bttv card=72

For some reason Mandrake 10 Official does not load v4l even tho it is in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer

Somewhere I read that this was a known problem. It's a nuisance having to do it manually.
