No. The dst module supports these cards.


I have one of those Twinhan DTV TER-CI 3030 Mantis DVB-T pci cards, but 
the dst module (from gentoo package v4l-dvb-hg-0.1-r2, which seems to 
pull the source via hg from the dvb repository) doesn't seem to 
recognize the card. dmesg and logfiles shows that the modules are loaded 
but they don't find a bt8x8 chip and thus no /dev/dvb/ entries are 
created (udev-103). I have tried the modules supplied by the kernel 
gentoo-sources-2.6.18-r2 (do I need to try vanilla 2.6.19-rc5?) as well, 
with the same results.

I am running 64bit Linux on an Athlon64 X2 3800+ stuffed into an ASUS 
M2NPV-VM motherboard. Both PCI slots are used, one for the Twinhan card 
and the other for an atheros based WiFi card (which works alright btw).

I provide some lspci & pcimodules output down below, what else can I do 
to find out what goes wrong here? Is it possible that Manu missed 
something when he stated that this card was supported by the dst module?

# pcimodules

No sign of any DVB drivers compliant with the card at 04:08.0

I have quite good programming skills (C++, C) and would be happy to help 
out as much as my wife allows me ;-)
