I've been trying to get my FusionHDTV5 Lite working in Linux. I did some 
search on Google, and finally got some instructions from this previous 

I followed the instructions and seemed to load the drivers successfully. 
Here is the related dmesg:

bttv: driver version 0.9.16 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).
bttv0: Bt878 (rev 17) at 0000:04:01.0, irq: 19, latency: 32, mmio: 
bttv0: detected: DViCO FusionHDTV 5 Lite [card=135], PCI subsystem ID is 
bttv0: using: DViCO FusionHDTV 5 Lite [card=135,autodetected]
bttv0: gpio: en=00000000, out=00000000 in=00ffffff [init]
bttv0: using tuner=64

bttv0: registered device video0
bttv0: registered device vbi0
bttv0: add subdevice "dvb0"
bt878: AUDIO driver version 0.0.0 loaded
bt878: Bt878 AUDIO function found (0).
bt878(0): Bt878 (rev 17) at 04:01.1, irq: 19, latency: 32, memory: 
DVB: registering new adapter (bttv0).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (LG Electronics LGDT3303 VSB/QAM Frontend)...

I did see "video0" and "vbi0" under "/dev", but the problem is, many 
programs (e.g. utils in dvb-apps) seemed to be looking for something like 
/dev/frontend0 and /dev/demux0, or /dev/dvb0. The dmesg output mentioned 
that subdevice "dvb0" and frontend were created, but I can't find them in 
/dev. So the question is where are they, or is there an alternative way to 
work without those devices? Thanks.
