 I change my account from romano_ferdinando at yahoo.it
in darkside_moon83 at yahoo.it

I have suse 9.2 with this kernel 2.6.8-24-smp and I
have these packages
v4l-tools 3.94-2
pwlib-plugins-v4l 1.8.0-3
v4l-conf 3.94-2
pwlib 1.8.0-3
dvb 1.1.0_CVS20040812-7
devs 9.2-1

The PCI ID of PCTV SAT is  11bd:001c 
I obtained this value from dmesg 

bttv0: detected: Pinnacle PCTV Sat [card=94], PCI
subsystem ID is 11bd:001c


>From the datasheet of pinnacle pc sat there are these

video digitalizer chip / control chip  PCI Conexant CN

numeric tuner TV /radio /dati Conexant HM 1211

Input sat antenna F connector SAT IF

passing band ( bandwidth) antenna output    F
connector SAT IF

video input
s video 


If I type with root privileges 
# rcdvd start              
(it's like service dvb start)
(load all dvb dviver)

dmesg show me

Please note that I have also on my PC another tv card
(terrestrian) Typhoon 
tv tuner with chipset philips saa7134

then I type 
 # modprobe dvb-bt8xx
 # modprobe cx24110

and the output of dmesg isn't changed

Do you think I need some kind of firmware ?
Perhaps scmain.c?
Do you have any suggestions ?

Thank for your interest
