Based on the Bona / Mentor TV-PCI discussion on the v4l mailing list.


This board does not have a config eeprom so it cannot be automatically detected, therefore you need to specify the card and tuner while loading the module. In /etc/modprobe.conf or the equivalent in your distribution (for specified automatic module loading) add:

options saa7134 card=57 tuner=54

Or, for manual module loading.

modprobe saa7134 card=57 tuner=54


In Gentoo Linux, to specify the module's options, edit the file /etc/modules.d/saa7134 (create it if necessary). Add the following to the file:

options saa7134 card=57 tuner=54

Then, update the script generated /etc/modprobe.conf file by running as root:

# modules-update

To get the module load every time the system boots up, edit /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and add:



Ubuntu 6.06

At least in Ubuntu 6.06.1, the saa7134-alsa and saa7134 modules (and dependencies) are loaded automatically at startup. I couldn't remove them with rmmod, so I could be able to load the saa7134 module with the correct options. Therefore I had to comment out the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base:

#install saa7134 modprobe --ignore-install saa7134 $CMDLINE_OPTS && { modprobe -Qb saa7134-alsa ; : ; } 

I haven't yet tried to use the saa7134-alsa module. --PedroPalhoto 21:33, 20 August 2006 (CEST)
