Yeah, no I mean that the difficulty in telling which modules were loaded in
response to which hardware or, conversely, which drivers each card is
using. In any case, I pulled the Fusion5 out leaving just the pvr 350 and
the HD3000 (again, a config which was working before) and grabbed lsmod |
sort - here is some of it:
btcx_risc 38857 3 cx8800,cx8802,cx88xx
button 41185 0
cx22702 40389 1 cx88_dvb
cx8800 71373 0
cx8802 47173 1 cx88_dvb
cx88_dvb 46429 0
cx88xx 103265 3 cx8800,cx88_dvb,cx8802
dm_mod 99337 0
dv1394 57273 0
dvb_core 129277 1 video_buf_dvb
dvb_pll 45509 4 cx88_dvb,or51132,nxt200x,cx22702
I'm posting this because I thought someone said that cx8800 would block
cx88_dvb, or is it that I can only use one set of functions - dvb, or ntsc -
at a time (in which case it's ok that both are loaded)?
