PCI TV Card help!


Ok i have a BT848KPF chipset on this tuner, there are no other markings or model numbers on it so im unsure of the brand of the card. I recompiled my kernel to include support for i2c and v4l and a module for the card (bttv) btw.. this is kernel 2.6.0

Now here is the output of lspci

Code:
root@slack:/home/trey# lspci
