Thanks but no dice.  The dvb driver has been loading fine.  I assume you
suggested (re)loading this module in hopes that the analog driver gets
pulled in with it, correct?

It should pull in a bunch of other modules automagically.  'dmesg' should

I have these same lines in my dmesg when the dvb driver gets loaded, they
must not pertain to the analog portion.  Are you able to glean at all from
dmesg or lsmod the name of the analog drivers that are required?  I assume
it's of the form v4l or something but I don't know.


Type faster.  Use Dvorak:
