I've just started from scratch installing Fedora Core 4 in my HTPC. I previously had FC3
going in the box, but ... well, that's a story for another time.

I can't figure why there's no /dev/dvb devices for my AvertTV 771 card. The bttv
module loads just fine:

# dmesg |grep bttv
bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).
bttv0: Bt878 (rev 17) at 0000:00:0b.0, irq: 11, latency: 32, mmio: 0xee001000
bttv0: detected: AVermedia AverTV DVB-T 771 [card=123], PCI subsystem ID is 1461:0771
bttv0: using: Euresys Picolo Tetra [card=121,insmod option]
bttv0: gpio: en=00000000, out=00000000 in=0095008f [init]
bttv0: using tuner=0
bttv0: i2c: checking for TDA9887 @ 0x86... not found
bttv0: registered device video0
bttv0: registered device vbi0
bttv0: PLL: 28636363 => 35468950 .. ok

and I can load the other modules mentioned in the AverMedia PDF (these lines are in my
/etc/rc.local for want of a better place):

modprobe mt352
modprobe dvb-bt8xx
