Problems with my TV card (Kworld studio Tv terminator)


Hi! I have Slackware 10.2, kernel 2.4.31. I have a TV card, Kworld studio TV Terminator with SAA7133 (philips) decoder. I have found it in 'lspci' list:
[quote]02:06.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d0)[quote]
But it doesn't work xawtv says:

v4l-conf had some trouble, trying to continue anyway
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device
v4l: open /dev/video0: No such device
no video grabber device available
I havn't installed any drivers. How to make it to work?

Looks like you need to use the saa7134 module to get it working so modprobe saa7134 and see if it gets detected. According to this Google Linux search the support was added in kernel 2.6.13 so hopefully it has made it back into 2.4.31 or you will have to upgrade you can check by looking into the file /drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-cards.c in your kernel source tree if you have it installed.

The source is not necessary it is just a way to check try modprobe command I suggested and see if it gets detected.
