I've upgraded to the latest Knoppix RV4 distribution and am trying to
set up the modules for my PVR-350. Following TomW and IvanK's TV-out
howto, but the modules section is not Debian spacific. I am having
trouble understanding the Debian way of initing modules. In Debian the
modules.conf is used to string together /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv ...
ivtv0 ... etc.
If I put the following in /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv, I don't get an
ivtv-fb created. I can do all the proper insmod and modprobes by hand.
So I know the h/w is ok.
Question: Where is the ivtv-fb created? Can someone shed some light
and let me know what works for them? I think if this isn't done quite
right, I may get some instabilities, which is what I was seeing in the
Here is the ivtv module modprobes that don't give me ivtv-fb
# This is for WinTV PVR-350 IVTV
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c

#type=2 for NTSC only

add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 saa7127 tuner
add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_i2c ivtv-fb
post-install ivtv /usr/local/bin/test_ioctl -d /dev/video0 -u 0x3000
