hi people. i have buy a new tv card (cinergy 600 TV radio - terratec) which uses the module saa7134

i have FC3 with kernel 2.6.9.something

the output of lspci is:

so that the card is recognized.

the modules are loaded, so the output from
lsmod | grep saa7134

if i run
xawtv -hwscan
the output is:

[root@delucca ~]# xawtv -hwscan
This is xawtv-3.94, running on Linux/i686 (2.6.9-1.667)

I think you should specify "saa7134 card=..." in your modprobe.conf file (or modules.conf for kernel2.4).

hi Yves,

is this right?:
add a line in modprobe.conf (i use 2.6.9 kernel) like this:
saa7134 card=/dev/video0

thankx a lot!!!
