I am a linux noob trying to build a pvr with a compro VideoMate dvb-t300 tuner card, but have hit a wall. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So far I have:
- installed gentoo 2.6.11
- patched kernel source with v4l2 latest patch from bytesex(http://dl.bytesex.org/patches/2.6.11-rc4-2/All-2.6.11-rc4.diff.gz)
- recompiled kernel and set up alternate boot to the new kernel
- used make menuconfig to add "Phillips SAA7134 support" and "DVB Support for saa7134 based TV cards" as kernel modules
- ran "make modules" and "make modules_install" to load the modules
now i believe this has all worked based on the following:
tv linux # modprobe -l | grep saa
however, from my reading of the saa7134 driver install instructions i may need to specify a card number and tuner for parameters (eg modprobe saa7134 card=x tuner=y). However, my card is not listed in the known card types and i have been unable to determine the tuner type yet.
when i "rmmod saa7134" then "modprobe saa7134" i get the following dmesg output:
saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.12 loaded
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:08.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
saa7134: quirk: PCIPCI_NATOMA

saa7134: i2c eeprom 30: ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff
saa7134: registered device video0 [v4l2]
saa7134: registered device vbi0
saa7134/audio: audio carrier scan failed, using 5.500 MHz [default]
I have tried by trial and error enteing every existing card number specified in the saa7134 driver doco with no success. I get variations on the above dmesg output but never do I get any recognition of a dvb device, and i certainly never get a dvb device in /dev/
I have run out of things to do. The only thing I can think of is to recompile the kernel modules with a earlier (stable?) v4l2 patch but now that I have patched my source am i unable to unpatch it so i can apply a different patch? (i think i may have learnt a lesson here).
Anyway, thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have. I have learnt a heap from going throught the Gentoo install process but obviously have a ways to go.
