Re: problem with my TVcard under woody
Hi! Not a bttv guru, but I used to use it

I can't say for sure, but: In my setup from Debian/potato, modutils
had those details in /etc/modutils/video, and did
pre-install bttv modprobe -k tuner
Note the main difference (apart from syntax, filename, etc) is
that it is installing the "tuner" module *before* it installs
bttv. My system also doesn't give the options, but it detects them
correctly. Perhaps those options are needed on your machine, you
know your system better than me (and again, I'm not a bttv guru).
Note that if you do change the setup to use pre-install, you
should not have it use "post-install" as well, or that would make
your machine try to load the tuner module twice, and it'll get upset.
AFAIK, it makes no difference whether the lines are in
/etc/modutils/actions or /etc/modutils/video, but you should
know that changes to those files are only updated into /etc/modules.conf
when you run update-modules (in case you didn't know).
Hope this might be of some help.

Er, thank you! :)
