[mythtv-users] Setting up a DVB Card

I just joined the list so I don't have all the entire thread to this
conversation but it seems like you are trying to recompile/update the kernel
with some kernel modules. Are you doing a recompile of the kernel from
vanilla source or just using FC3s update mechanism?
I know if you compile the vanilla kernel there are a bunch of side modules
that you need to include in order for the DVB stuff to work. I'm using a
pcHDTV HD-3000 which is an ATSC board that has DVB support in Kernel
2.6.12-rc2 and greater.
If you don't mind, could you send an output of lsmod?

Nigel, this is very encouraging to see! I have been banging my head against
the wall in several late-night sessions trying to get my DVB-T card (Nebula
DigiTV) working and I had come to the conclusion that my kernel version
(2.6.11-1.14) was too new for there to be sufficient guiding documentation
around for an idiot like me. Really good to see a success story.
Having read your post, I ran all the packages above (only the last three
actually updated anything, somehow I'd already got the first two) then did
'make' and 'insmod' of dvb-kernel (again!) but I still can't see any
'DVB:' entries in dmesg... which is my success criteria for this step...
Would you mind explaining how you knew which apt-get packages you needed,
and how I would go about figuring out which I need for my Nebula card?
(according to the linuxtv wiki it's the same as an ATI NXT6000)
Just for fun I tried the following but 'couldn't find package'... oh
# apt-get install ntx6000-kmdl-2.6.11-14_FC3
Thanks very much in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply.
There may be a clue in my dmesg: the final line is as follows:
dvb_usb_digitv: Unknown symbol nxt6000_attach
Though my card is PCI not USB, so this may be a red herring.
according to Martin Smith's guide these are probably not a problem, but
the following lines from the beginning of insmod output might be
FATAL: Module crc32 not found.
FATAL: Module firmware_class not found.
FATAL: Module evdev not found.
An error message at the end of insmod's output could be relevant to my
card (though it is PCI, not USB):
insmod: error inserting './dvb-usb-digitv.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
sadly my card doesn't seem to have it's own page.
