[linux-dvb] hauppage WinTV-NOVA-T_PCI

I ran into the same problem.

The thing is you have a hybrid card that can do analogue and digital.

And by default things seem to load the analogue driver first. Try
unloading. So do this...

rmmod cx8800
rmmod cx8802
rmmod cx88xx
modprobe cx88-dvb
modprobe cx8800

That should fix things.

It's just needed that the cx88-dvb be loaded first, to deal with the
digital part, then load the analogue.

Alan.
