Ok, I am getting the tv fuzzy screen and I have checked the connection to make sure it worked so what do I need to adjust or change to get it working properly? Any ideas?

Hi,

I did a little searching and found this entry no the Gentoo wiki:
http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Saa7134

It seems that you either need to tell the driver (by loading it with the correction options) about what hardware you have (see the link above for details), *or* tell it to autodetect using the i2c_scan option.

Eg.
Code:
modprobe -r saa7134
modprobe saa7134 i2c_scan=1
Once you find the correct options, you can have the module automtically load with them by putting them in a config file. Eg make /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134.conf contiaining
Code:
options saa7134 i2c_scan=1

Well I read the article and tried the code you gave me and I guess I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. This is what I found for the card when I ran the code dmesg:

I tried to read the article and enter what I needed to but everything I tried seemed to fail. I also ran the code you gave me and the output was this:

lisa@lisa-pc:~$ modprobe -r saa7134

Thank you for reviewing this and sorry to be such a bother. It's probably something simple I'm just not seeing or getting.

Hi,

it seems you already tried to make config file with modprobe options. Note that as the message says, you should rename it to somethine like saa7134.conf Ie

Code:
mv /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134 /etc/modprobe/saa7134.conf
Also, are you sure the options that you put in that file are correct? Please try with just the scan optoion. Ie make the contents of the file look like:
Code:
options saa7134 i2c_scan=1
I can also see from the error messages that there seems to be a typo in the file. Did you type "opions" instead of "options". Please try to read and understand what the error messages are telling you. They are there for a reason.

Finally, this file is not something that you should try to execute, it is something that modprobe will read.

Evo2.
