Please provide here, for PCI/PCIe devices, the relevant output of lspci -vnn . We're particularly interested in the subsystem ID's. To make a code block simply make the first character of each line a space.

Making it Work

You need the following options selected on kernel:

Device Drivers  --->
 Multimedia devices  --->
  [*] Customize analog and hybrid tuner modules to build  --->
      <M>   XCeive xc2028/xc3028 tuners
  [*] Video capture adapters  --->
      <M>   Conexant 2388x (bt878 successor) support

in other words, you need the following modules: tuner_xc2028 and cx8800

Then just:

modprobe cx8800

and you've done!


You need the firmware (please take a look at Documentation/video4linux/extract_xc3028.pl with builtin instructions).


Provide the details of where the drivers and patches and necessary tools are available.
