BT848 TV not working with custom 2.6.22 kernel


I installed a custom compiled 2.6.22 kernel (built the traditional way, using menuconfig in /usr/src/linux-2.6.22) but then tvtime could not work with my BT848 TV card (error message - "not a video4linux device" and "cannot open capture device /dev/video". The device is there and a simple video app. I wrote myself says:
cyclops: Opened V4L2 device: /dev/v4l/video0
cyclops: VIDIOC_QUERYCAP: error 25, Inappropriate ioctl for device

The TV worked with kernel 2.6.21, although to listen to radio with gqradio I had to start tvtime first to get any sound. I double checked my config but can't see anything missing, I have compiled custom kernels many times and so I could say I am not inexperienced. I am using latest Arch x86-64 on an AMD Athlon 64 machine.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

My thanks in advance!
