[linux-dvb] Second tuner on Fusion Dual Digital

If that fails, a hack I put in place using older v4l-dvb drivers was to add these lines:
/sbin/modprobe cx88-dvb
/sbin/modprobe cx88-dvb


(/etc/rc.local loads drivers after everything else)

The system detected one card, but not the "second" one.

I think the latest drivers fix that though.

Also, if you are using mythtv (0.19) you need to run mythsetup as root to configure your card.


> Hello,

I've got the first tuner going no probs and love it. The second tuner is causing some greif. From what I've read, I've downloaded the firmware, and loaded dvb_usb_cxusb and dvb_usb  . Somewhat of a concern is the both dmesg and  var/log/messages are very quite about the whole thing. The modules load but nothing else is repored. Also, what /dev entry does the usb tuner show up under ?
