Question Tv-tuner with PHILIPS SAA7130. How to make it work?


So... I bought Tv-tuner Manli MuchTV M-TV001 (very cheap, about 30$), it use SAA7130 chip. My kernel is 2.6.5 with hot-plug enabled, and detects the card, but it has no subsistem ID, and loads it as generic. My question is how to make it load as "Manli MuchTV M-TV001"

CLASS: registering class device: ID = 'event0'
class_hotplug - name = event0
CLASS: registering class device: ID = 'event1'
class_hotplug - name = event1
CLASS: registering class device: ID = 'event2'
class_hotplug - name = event2
Linux video capture interface: v1.00
device class 'video4linux': registering
bus type 'i2c' registered
bus i2c: add driver i2c_adapter
device class 'i2c-adapter': registering
device class 'sound': registering

saa7134: Congratulations! Your TV card vendor saved a few

so do that, and if it works, just edit /etc/modules.conf to reflect the change permanently.

10x for your reply, but that was actually why I post this question. I don't understand what exactly I have to do.

So... This card is crappy. Don't use it. Tvtime, Zapping, Kdetv refuse to work with it, but Xawtv wokrked (only with 2.4.xx kernel), and could catch only too few chanels. I've change it for one Pixelview PlayTV pro. Again i have to specify module parameters, but the card works fine with kernel 2.4.26 and 2.6.5. I could not use LIRC with 2.6 kernel but i'll wait for fix.
