I am trying to run mythtv (0.17) on a Debian box with the KWorld
V-Stream DVB-T card. I have installed the standard Debian 2.6.10-1
kernel and udev, and it seems to auto-detect the card, install a bunch
of cx88 modules, and create /dev/video0 and /dev/vbi0 devices for me.
It all seems to be good as far as it goes.
In the myth card configuration I can add it as a video 4 linux card, and
it seems to work (I haven't set up any channels properly, so I can't be
sure). However, if I try to add it as a DVB card, it says it can't find
it. A friend with a different card *can* add his as a DVB card, and the
difference seems to be his card gets a /dev/dvb device created for it.
Mine does not.
So I have 2 questions:
1) Do you get anything extra from having the card as a DVB instead of
v4l? Or should I not care?
2) Why would this be happening? Is there something I can change either
in the kernel or in udev to make it create dvb devices instead of v4l?
I'm going to the back seat of my car with the woman I love, and
I won't be back for TEN MINUTES.
