Yes - our local TV stations and cable have all gone digital.
This is in Seattle.

Yes - all were already selected as modules

I am testing this so I stayed as root in the xterm.

I downloaded every TV app to try and get this thing to work.

It was manual but I cannot duplicate it.
In fact now my box is badly broken - NO MODULES AT ALL get loaded.
I use wireless lan, no module - no internet.

I have the two latest F10 kernels - neither load any modules now.
This happened at first a couple of days ago, I rebooted into the old kernel and it came up fine.
Then I used yumex to delete and re-install the latest kernel.
This worked fine.

Now I have somehow killed both kernels - no modules.
I will post a new help for this.
The box I am posting from is different and is on F11-pre.

I was trying to "depmod pvrusb2, and insmod pvrusb2".
I could go to /lib/modules and drill down and find the module.
But it would not load.

I will answer the rest of your questions when it is fixed.
( it was not in either database, and the ID string was correct for the device)
