i bought a dvb-t card ago some days, now i'm tried to get it working in
linux without any luck. It seems that there are not many information
available for that card (google displays mostly other cards or product

    Hauppauge WinTV HVR 1400 Hybrid TV ExpressCard (Analog and Digital Tuner)

When inserting it into my notebook, my kernel is loading the "cx23885"
module and displaying:

    "Your board isn't known (yet) to the driver. You can
     try to pick one of the existing card configs via
     card=<n> insmod option. Updating to the latest
     version might help as well."

I tried the 5 available cards (0 = unknown/generic, 1 = wintv-hvr1800lp, 2
= wintv-hvr1800, 3 = wintv-hvr1250, 4 = dvico fusionhdtv5 express)

    0 works without an error msg, but i don't have /dev/dvb/* /dev/videoX
or /dev/v4l/*
    1,2,3 prints out: cx23885_dev_setup() Failed to register dvb adapters
on VID_C and does not give a /dev/dvb/* /dev/videoX or /dev/v4l/*
    4 gives /dev/dvb* but no /dev/videoX or /dev/v4l/*

My questions are easy...:
    1 is that card supported?
    2 any idea how to get that card working (i don't have windows, so i
cannot use that card)

Here are some more information, if you need further information or
details, just let me know:
