Getting a Leadtek winfast DV2000 to work.

I'm trying for over a month now to get my Leadtek Winfast DV2000 tv-card to work on my Suse box. The biggest error I get is something like "ioctl VIDIOC_FBUF: I/O Error".

Using Google and on other forums I've found a lot of people who got similar problems, but the discussion always ends just before the solution normally comes. These discussions are usually a bit old (from like 2 years ago), so I assume someone has has succeeded in installing the card.

Now my question is: Is there someone who succeeded in making my card to work and on what distro?

My card is listed as follows by lspci: "(03:0c.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)" and it is a Leadtek Winfast DV2000.
This card is officially listed in the compatible cards list of v4l, so I suppose there are no major problems with it. (I AM using the latest kernel for SuSE 10.1 (

Thanks in advance
