anyone having problems with a Technotrend 1500 PCI card? Perhaps here is the solution:
I finally don´t believe that a plain LMCE installation will work with any PCI card that contains a phillips saa7146 chip for controlling the frontend (tuner).
The linux kernel in LMCE 7.10 contains a driver "snd_aw2" for an audiowerk sound card. This driver has a bug, so it is loaded for every saa7146 chip probably in any PCI device (?). For me, it was loaded instead of the correct frontend driver for my TT1500 DVB-S card. After blacklisting the driver in /etc/modprobe.d, the DVB card finally works! HEUREKA!
Just add a line
to the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
And since then there is just one sound card in ALSA, so now audio output works well, too!
Hope it may help anyone.
Have a nice time
