i can't watch TV

Arch 0.7.1 (Noodle)  2.6.14.5

i can't watch tv both Xawtv and kdetvde. Cable is ok but i can't see the channels.

My card is brooktree bt848 but:

#lspci
00:0e.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 02)
00:0e.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 02)

but it installed bt878 drivers. could it be the reason?

Re: i can't watch TV

I'd suggest trying the 2.6.15-2 kernel and new udev that were just dropped into the repos.  They might fix this for you.

Better keep copies of the old files close by though, because the new ones seem to be breaking lots of stuff for some users.

Re: i can't watch TV

Prevent loading the bt878 module in the /etc/rc.conf MOD_BLACKLIST and if nessecary add module bt848.

Re: i can't watch TV

There is a file CARDLIST.bttv in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux. Try to find your card and load bttv module with relevant parametr.

Re: i can't watch TV

#nano /usr/src/linux-2.6.14.5/Documentation/video4linux/bttv/Modules.conf

# For modern kernels (2.6 or above), this belongs in /etc/modprobe.conf
# For for 2.4 kernels or earlier, this belongs in /etc/modules.conf.

# i2c
alias char-major-89     i2c-dev
options i2c-core        i2c_debug=1
options i2c-algo-bit    bit_test=1

# bttv
alias char-major-81     videodev
alias char-major-81-0   bttv
options bttv            card=2 radio=1
options tuner           debug=1

I configure it but still:

#lspci

00:0e.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 02)
00:0e.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 02)
