Aver tv card, change number.


I have an aver tv card saa7134 and I need to change it to the correct card number, but I get FATAL: saa7134 already in use. I have tried a few methods online but none of them have worked.

Hi, Alan.

What version of Linux are you using, what command are you using to change the TV card to the correct card number, and why was the card number "incorrect" in the first place?

I use this to change my device name for my nic card, under "Change device name". It just might help guild you to be able to name your device whatever the software is looking for, using the same methodology.

You can change the device name by defining the name manually with an udev-rule

here is one for Writing udev rules

either that, or it is already loaded prior to you, or the software you're using is trying to load it again.

Hence the, "saa7134 already in use" message.

Mint 17.3, dmesg, vendor has saved a few cents on a eeprom no subsystem ID, card=nr I think it should be 85 but I don't know how to change it.
