atvpci883 help
« on: September 02, 2005, 09:14:13 am »
I've been trying to set up this card, but to no avail.  I get 4 composites and no tuner, though the first composite seems to be trying to use the tuner.  lspci says the card is a WinTV 2000XP and I've been trying to use the cx88xx drivers, and I've also installed the firmware.  Anyone have any ideas?

If you look in /var/log/syslog for cx88 entries you should see if the card's subsystem was recognised or it got detected as "generic/unknown". If its subsystem is set to 0000:0000 but the card is supported by the drivers, you'll need to force the card parameter.

But, if your card was detected and is supported (i.e. subsystem is not 0000:0000 and card is not generic/unknown) you'll need some firmware for it.

Let me know what your case is, maybe I can give you more info.
