You're right, the card does look initialised.  When I installed under
Ubuntu 5.10 a while ago, I had to add a (couple of) kernel module.  I
can't remember what it was but I worked my way though the following
list, which is what I had to use under FC2 also.

      modprobe video-buf
       modprobe btcx-risc
       modprobe i2c-core
       modprobe v4l2-common
       modprobe v4l1-compat
       modprobe i2c-algo-bit
       modprobe videodev
       modprobe dvb-core.ko dvb_shutdown_timeout=0
       modprobe firmware_class
       modprobe bttv
       modprobe bt878
       modprobe dvb-bt8xx
       modprobe mt352

You should look at which ones you don't have loaded yet.  Perhaps I
had to add it to a boot up script too, but I don't remember where I
did that.  If you have any ideas, let me know.

If there is anything else you need to know, let me know.  I am
currently running with 3x 771's in my Ubuntu 6.06 box.
