I'm running plain kernels, and I compile everything in--no modules
except for ivtv and nVidia. Under 184.108.40.206, lspci reports:
01:07.0 Network controller: Techsan Electronics Co Ltd B2C2 FlexCopII DVB chip / Technisat SkyStar2 DVB card (rev 02)
I don't know why it says it's a network instead of multimedia card, but
it works. When I was experimenting with newer kernels, the /dev/dvb
directory was populated by udev correctly, and Myth could find it in the
setup; it just couldn't tune it.
I'm guessing that you're missing some modules; I think you're further
away from success than I am. I'm not familiar with Ubuntu kernels, but
distribution kernels usually do everything as modules.
Here's the relevant portion of my kernel configuration:
I'm not sure what else you need to set, and as I don't have it working
perfectly, I may be missing something.
