Sometimes, my tuner cards are detected and thus
assigned to /dev/videoX
numbers in different orders - this wouldn't be an
issue except that they
have very different connections and features. Right
now, I've got a
pvr-150 with both cable and video-in and a hd5500 with
qam and backup
cable in - if they get detected in the wrong order,
have an mpeg encoder, doesn't have an attached cable
box to video0, and
gets darn nasty reception. I've been planning to
replace the 150 with a
500, but I'm nervous that it'll make things even
Is there any way to force detection to proceed in
not changing unless I swap cards?
You can blacklist the modules in your modprobe.conf.
This way they'll be loaded when you modprobe in
rc.local in the same order everytime. You could also
write a udev rule. I did the blacklist which took just
a minute to do.
