  Hi All,

  Finnaly got some time to give the patch a go. I used the pacakges
  Stephen, sent the link to, not Mark's. I cant't get past the attached
  problem. The dmesg output is attached. I tried setting the card like
  /etc/modprobe.d/options file and add the line: options cx88xx card=11
  I also tried the following two varients:
  cx23885 card=11
  cx23885 card=12

  I also got what looked like an error message when applying the first
  patch, something like "strip count 1 is not a number" (although 1 not
  being a number would explain my difficulties with maths!)

The patch did not apply correctly as the dmesg should list an extra entry
in card list (number 12), and it should have autodetected.

Attached is the newest copy of the patch (save this in the same directory
that you use the following commands from), just to avoid confusion.
Following the following:
wget http://linuxtv.org/hg/~stoth/v4l-dvb/archive/2bade2ed7ac8.tar.gz
tar -xf 2bade2ed7ac8.tar.gz
cd v4l-dvb-2bade2ed7ac8
patch -p1 <../Leadtek_Winfast_PxDVR3200_H.diff
sudo make install
sudo make unload
sudo modprobe cx23885

Now the card should have been detected and you should have /dev/adapterN/
(where N is a number). If it hasn't been detected properly you should see
a list of cards in dmesg with the card as number 12. Unload the module
(sudo rmmod cx23885) and then load it with the option card=12 (sudo
modprobe cx23885 card=12)

For further instructions on how to watch digital tv look at the wiki page
(you need to create a channels.conf).


Please make sure you cc the linux dvb mailing list, so if anyone else has
the same issue we can work together to solve it.
Also the convention is to post your message at the bottom (I got caught
by this one until recently).
