I think I was too optimistic about the 2.6 kernel being ready to go, so I am getting out of my depth. Apparently there are some other steps involved in getting things set up, including getting 'firmware' for your card. See the documentation in Documentation/dvb in the kernel code and also the various README files that come in the dvb driver package from linuxtv.org:

http://linuxtv.org/download/dvb/linu...-1.1.1.tar.bz2

All this also has advice on the apps to run with the card. Sorry I can't give you a step-by-step HOWTO, because I haven't done it myself.

to have /dev/dvb/adapter0

Go in the linuxtv driver folder and make :

./MAKEDEV.sh load

It will make what you want : /dev/adapter0/ with demux0 and others ..

ok don't panic

to create the /dev/dvb/adaptor0/ with demx0 net0 dvr0 and net0

you have to make the makedev program in the dvb driver you found in linuxtv.

just do ./makedev.sh and it will do your job ..


good luck
