what actually happens... what you say doesn't really make sense, the card WILL use the bttv driver... are there any error messages from the application or such like?

Thank you, no error but it is not catching any tv channel, even when i tried to configure from mandrake control center (mandrake 9.1). I tried also to configure my card manualy (tv card type >select BT878P4+, tunner type> select Phillips, TV norm PAL and/or NTSC but some how when it scan the channel it doesn't get any)

Please do not use the "report this post" option in order to get attention to your question. If I knew anything about TV cards, I would have probably replied anyway, but I do not. The reporting option is to be used only to report violations of the forum rules.
