#1662: mandriva 2006 DVB card
 Reporter:  fatherosam   |       Owner:  danielk
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor        |   Milestone:         
Component:  dvb          |     Version:         
 Severity:  low          |  

 I have been installing Mythtv on Mandriva 2006, and was having all sorts
 of trouble, because I couldn't get the DVB card installed properly.

 Maybe in your mandiva section of hardware summary you could add this

 check to see if /dev/dvb/ exists, if it dosent then follow as below
 for a  bt878 card make the following adjustments

 edit /etc/modprobe.preload
 add this

 edit /etc/modprobe.conf
 add this line

 install dvb /sbin/modprobe --first-time videodev && { /sbin/modprobe bttv
 card=0x71 i2c_hw=1; /sbin/modprobe dvb-core; /sbin/modprobe v4l1-compat;
 /sbin/modprobe v4l2-common; /sbin/modprobe video-buf; /sbin/modprobe dst;
 /sbin/modprobe bt878; /sbin/modprobe dvb-bt8xx; /bin/true; }

 NOTE ::  Above is meant to be one line

 Thanks David
