Re: Using DVB interfaces on Fedora 2 test3



Hi.  I don't know (exactly) how different DVB-T is from a standard TV
tuner card, but (with a standard TV tuner card), I had to put entries
into modules.conf, and also /etc/rc.d/rc.local (well actually a startup
script that I initiate from rc.local) where I load modules (for me,
bttv, v4l, tvaudio and a few other modules specific to my card).  As for
my card, I can see that it's detected by running cat /proc/devices |
grep video (which show video4linux), and video is covered by
/dev/video0.  I suspect it would be the same for your tuner (but my
suspicion isn't a certainty because I don't have a DVB-T card).
