[linux-dvb] Problem's making a PCMCIA DVB Card to work

Aitor mail at aitorpazos.es

Hello,
I have a PCMCIA DVB card with DVB-T, analog TV, FM Radio, S-Video and
Composite inputs. It was packed with a Targa Pc and the only brand or
model reference that is printed on it is "LR502 NTA".

This is what dmesg prints about card's model:
saa7133[0]: subsystem: 5168:0502, LifeView/Typhoon/Genius FlyDVB-T Duo
Cardbus [card=60,autodetected]

I've tried several firmwares, but I haven't been able to make it work. I
have the original windows driver (just in case they are useful in some
way).


I've attached two insert/extract cycles. During the first one the
firmware didn't load correctly (TDA10046LifeView)

If someone could help I would appreciate it very much. At least, to be
able to watch Composite input.

Thank you,
	Aitor
