Hi to all, this is my first post ...
I have a trouble with the AVERMEDIA DVB-T 771 card with my Ubuntu Edgy Eft
6.10 linux.
My kernel version is : 2.6.17

I use this howto to configure with Ubuntu:

In this Howto the kernel version is 2.6.10, but in that howto says that
there isn't any problem with upper versions (like my 2.6.17).
The problem is, that in the howto's step when "make menuconfig", there is
some options to check in the menuconfig...I have all the options, except one
Device Drivers --> Multimedia devices --> Digital Video Broadcasting
Devices=>**Nebula/Pinnacle PCTV/Twinhan PCI cards

*I haven't this option to check with <M> option, and nothing similar.  All
the other options are correct and checked like this tutorial.
Although there is not that option, I try to continue with the tuto. The next
step is to modprobe the next modules :
*The 3 modprobes works (there are not error displays).

But when I make a dmesg: "*dmesg | grep DVB" *I have not results :(

Obviously, when I try to scan chanels (the next step in the howto) doesn't
works...The error is "no such device /dev/DVB/adapter0/fronted0".

Additionally I try to create the nodes adapter0,adapter1, etc  with a sh
script that I found  in the avermedia website howto :

and there is creates....but the same error in the channels scan...

I Think that the card is not recognized by my system, I don't know if the
trouble is :
1.-  My menuconfig haven't the *"Nebula/Pinnacle PCTV/Twinhan PCI cards"*option
2.- The howto is not valid for me
3.- My system doesn't detects my card
4.- Other?

Tests? Sollutions? Please help me

Thanks for your time and sorry for my poor english!
