Okay, I inform someone to not start a new thread by replying to another one, 
and then someone else (that would be you, Prash), goes and replies to an 
already-mis-threaded message two down the threading chain from my 
admonishment and does exactly the same thing. So now we have one thread that 
contains three completely separate subjects in it. Please, people, create a 
new email for a new thread. It isn't that much to ask, nor is it all that

Have you already searched the mailing list archive, read the MythTV docs, 
visited the oracle of google and pvrhw.goldfish.org? If not, please go do so. 
Just about any bt8x8 card supported by the bttv driver is fine.

Please Read The Fine Manual(s). And the README(s). And the ivtv wiki. And 
visit google again.

No, the ivtv driver does not support brooktree chipsets. That should be pretty 
obvious from a quick look at the ivtv documentation. Seriously.

Whatever floats your boat.

You're welcome. Now please read the first link in my sig and try not to ask 
questions you should be able to figure out on your own. And don't reply to 
another message to start a new thread. (Yes, I'm cranky, it's late).
