How to configure Avermedia DVB-T 777 TV Card

Hello, I am new here.

I have read a lot of the posts but cannot find info for the above card.

I have been trying to get a linux version that would work on my machine for months. I finally got Kanotix working and my Dlink USB ADSL Modem working so I could get on-line.

My problem now is my TV Card.

This is the output from lspci:

and this is from modprobe

If someone could give me some help it would be very much appreciated.

I got this card working last night under KnoppMyth R5D1 (I've had it for a few days now).

You need to insert a few extra modules for the DVB to be a registered device, and to get sound working (saa7134-dvb and saa7134-alsa). I don't get any output out of the card's video and audio outs though - the linux driver doesn't seem to handle this.

I submitted an HCL entry last night, and I'll add a review when it's approved.

I submitted an HCL entry a while back, but it wasn't well written and it eventually got rejected.
I've done it again now, and it's been accepted.
I've just made a quick review of it.


dvbt, saa7134
