Hi

I've been successfully using the in-kernel drivers upto 2.6.15.6 for my 4
cards (3 Nove-t, 1 twinhan and one dvb-s)

03:03.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and
Audio Decoder (rev 05)
03:03.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio
Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)
03:03.4 Multimedia controller: Conexant CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio
Decoder [IR Port] (rev 05)
04:09.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video
Capture (rev 11)
04:09.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture
(rev 11)
04:0a.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
04:0b.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)


When I upgraded to 2.6.16.x I get this in the logs

Sooo the bttv based twinhan and the connexant based nova works but the
philips and lsi based nova's dont. Am I missing something?

Cheers

labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
