Is this really true?  Afaics, all of these cards should be autodetected.
If the autodetection in the bttv driver will not work, the new probe
code in bt878.c would be in trouble too.

I saw reports where the autodetect was not working (subsys-id nulled) but
in those cases the hardware was non-working anyway (hosed i2c bus) and
forcing a card-id wouldn't help (escpecially with the current bt878 probe
as it doesn't know anything about bttv's card option - it will simply
reject the card).

So, unless I got something wrong, I would suggest to remove all references
to the card option from Documentation/dvb/bt8xx.txt.

Ciao, ET.
