Re: Hauppauge PVR-250 and PCHDTV-3000 with kernel

No, I have not tried the video4linux drivers, but I think I may now. I compiled the ivtv drivers from source as they don't supply binaries, so I would've thought it'd be a piece of cake.

This brings up another question though. The V4L module is included with the kernel and I enabled it when I built the kernel. Does this mean that the V4L module in my kernel is not new enough? I think I read it was just starting to be included now that I think about it.

Many thanks!

the ivtv driver and replace the msp3400, tveeprom, tuner, and tda9887
modules with the ivtv supplied ones, my cx88* drivers no longer load
complaining of the following (excerpt from loading cx88-dvb):

I ran depmod -a after moving the old versions of the afore mentioned
modules aside, but no luck.  Are the modules built by ivtv so
different?  Doesn't depmod take care of this kind of problem?  Or
should I forget the cx88* drivers that come with the kernel and install
the ivtv and PCHDTV drivers separately?  I've also read that much of
the ivtv stuff is being built into the video4linux module, so I'm
wondering if I should build that separately too.

I you are using binary modules supplied by ivtv, then they will work
best with the kernel they were compiled for.  They _might_ work with
later kernels. The kernel developers really dislike binary modules since
they tend to break things in unpredictable ways - this is even more
of a problem if the kernel release has changed since inter module
dependencies _will_ change.

Have you tried the video4linux module? If it works with your ivtv stuff
its probably your best bet.
