Question WinTV Nova-T card problems


Hello, I've compiled a custom kernel to (try) to get my Nova-T DVB card working, however I don't think I've succeeded - Kaffiene can't find it...

I think I have all of the modules I need, here is the output of lsmod:

Code:

Other than the custom kernel I'm using Mandriva LE2005.

I have a feeling that device 00:0b.4 has somethig to do with the problem (but only because it comes up a "unknown"). I know people have got this card working, but I can't seem to find any decent HOWTOs on the subject! Perhaps that can be a job for me, if I get it working of course!

TIA
Cheers!

Compare the directory listings to http://www.ethics-gradient.net/myth/mythdvb.html but do not run getlinks and ignore insmod script. Continue on to "Test Scanning and Tuning of Channels".

I have not used DVB cards because I do not have satelite or live in the UK, so I can not help you any further. I did setup Hauppauge PVR-250 that has similar steps except downloading channels as the dvb howto. If you have any more documentation that you what to be summarized, just post the link.

BTW, Mandriva 10.x is not the easiest version to tinker or setup hardware. I suggest Mandrake 9.x or Slackware.
