I currently setup my second VDR box but it seems that the DVB cards is
not detected by the driver. The system boots via NFS and PXE boot, but
I don't think that this should be a problem.
I use kernel 2.6.20.

If I now try to load the driver with:
modprobe dvb_ttpci

I got only in dmesg:
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
saa7146: register extension 'dvb'.

Thanks for any help.
