bt878 TV capture card doesnt work on fedora 5

I have a bt878 TV card that used to work smoothly on fedora 4, after installing fedora 5, kepping the same allias in modprobe.conf the the card doesnt work anymore. These are options that i put in my modprobe.conf:

alias eth0 via-rhine
alias scsi_hostadapter sata_via
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-via82xx index=0
alias char-major-81 snd-bt87x
alias char-major-81 bttv
options bttv card=24 tuner=2
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx

dmsg give some interesting message:
