Re: Loading bttv module at boot?



I tested my system using your modprobe.conf, that is, I added the line
char-major-81-0 and my output seemed to be the same as before. I don't
think that line makes much difference either way on my computer. I
wonder what it is? Could it be your radio chip? I don't have one. I am
sure you need that line and I don't, becaue a few days ago your output
listing said, "registerd device radio0" and now it doesn't. You have a
radio tuner built into your card, too, don't you?

We are on the wrong track! Save your money. You've got a good card.
The problem is another.

You do have hotplug installed? But the kernel is recognizing the card,
after all. That's not it either.

And what we didn't notice before, is that the card IS getting mounted
to dev/video0! It says so right near the bottom of your kernel output,
just before the PLL. Are you certain your tvtuner is type=39?

The output looks good. Really. What isn't the card doing?

Have you tried the card with tvtime? It's part of the standard fedora
distribution. You should get video signals. I am absolutely certain
that your card is properly loaded to /dev/video0. Test it with tvtime,
or if you have to, go to fedora-extras and get the old xawtv.

PS: After the complaints from the crotchety old men LOL, I got a gmail
account to read the threads properly and not have to get the digest.
