i have used this exact tvcard for 4 years including last 7 months on Linux Mandrake
TVcard tested still works in other computer
um i recently replaced the mainboard (ecs k7S5A) with an ASUS A7S8X mainboard
booted Mandrake 10.1 as normal and my PCI TVcard worked fine in tvtime
but decided to reinstall Mandrake 10.1 Official from scratch anyway.
during install setup TVcard details as per usual
when i get to KDE
tvtime spits up
cannot find /dev/video
Hardrake reports tvcard is fully installed
Vendor: Brooktree Corp.
Media class: MULTIMEDIA_VIDEO
Bus PCI #: 0
PCI device #: 9
PCI function #: 0
Vendor ID: 4254
Device ID: 878
Sub vendor ID: 65535
Sub device ID: 65535
i have tried to config with xawtv many times also
follow the prompts
card model "pixelview 878 rev 4c"
tuner "philips 1246 PAL-I"
and i get this error message
Session "Scanning for TV channels" has exited .. Status 1"
kdetv no video device found
as last resort i have reinstalled mandrake literaly 7 times including linux from scratch
any ideas whats wrong?
