    TV Card instillation


    I'm trying to install my Compro VideoMate T220

    I cannot get Kaffeine to recognise it's installed though. I think it may be because the modules aren't loaded?

    Here is some information about my instillation:

    Code:
    lspci -vvv

    Code:
    dmesg | grep saa

    Code:

    ls: cannot access /dev/dvb: No such file or directory
    Any ideas on what I could try?

    Use lsmod to make sure the module is loaded, read up on the documentation on it somewhere in the Documentation/ directory of the kernel source, there might be something useful there.

    I believe the card may be faulty. I have installed the card's driver and software on XP and it cannot find any channels. I know the aerial is fine and can pick up freeview channels as I have tested it (in it's location) on a freeview box attached to my TV.

    I have e-mail Compro and am waiting for a reply...
