I am hoping this problem has already been solved, but I couldn't find anything mentioned in the archives going back a while.

I am running Kubuntu 8.10 with 2.6.27-11-generic on a Toshiba laptop with dual AMD 64 processors.  

I installed the drivers from the non-experimental ones at www.linuxtv.org using mercurial and that helped with some problems.  However, the tuner is now recognized, but can't seem to turn on when called for by MythTV or dvbscan.  

 Partial Results of dmesg follow:

Please let me know what else might be needed to solve this.

Saw a link that recommended using v4l-dvb-experimental  drivers but wasn't sure if that was wise.


Thanks, 

Nick
