At this point I'm back to my original two tuners. I am about to try
again with the PVR 500. However, there is one thing that I am not sure
How do I determine which card and tuner correspond to /dev/videoX?
Is there a command to verify this, or do I just assume the card
directly below the AGP slot is /dev/video0 and count down from there?
Searching the archives for IRQ sharing did not yield much. I tried
booting with 'noacpi', but this did not seem to help. Any tips on
If I really knew for sure which tuner was having troubles, it might
make this problem easier to track down. Since I had both tuners on the
500 working at one point, while one of the 250s stopped working, I
believe that this is not a driver issue, but a problem with IRQ
resources. It's very similar to an issue that I had with just the two
250s, which I solved by moving one to a different slot.
