Well, obviously I am missing something, otherwise I wouldn't be asking.
So as I understand whats written in the log is, that my card is not recognized (yet) and I should either pick one of the existing cards- which are listed below or updating to the latest version.
Well, that is about it...and that is as far as I get. I did follow the wiki on this http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Hauppauge_Nova-HD-S2
with the current result. I got the v4l-dvb package from linuxtv.org did a make and make install. When I was doing the make, it gave some complaints about the kernel.
I downloaded the firmware, extracted it etc. I did follow it to the letter...actually if you copy the commands and paste them in putty you really make sure not to make mistakes on your own
The sad part is, that I had it working before I decided to try 8.10 a bit prematurely and now i can't seem to repeat my steps from before. I got my eee-box running again nicely, but the TV-Card....
So please enlighten me, where I can get the appropriate files, if the ones I have are not working.
