    Hi all i have a tv card with radio tuner which i want to make it work but i can't.The tv card is
    PROLINK PLAY TV PRO ULTRA PV-TV304P
    and it is based on Bt878 chipset.I configure ok the kernel (i think) and after i restart my pc i load v4l extension in my xorg.conf and i load the bttv module.Now here are some commands outputs
    lspci

    there are a number of possible card types that v4l supports. You can force the card number when you do a modprobe. As you can see from your output
    bttv0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC *** [card=0,autodetected]
    No card type is being detected.

    There is a list of card types in the documentation section of the kernel source (under something like /usr/linux/src/docs/v4l or something like that).

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
