[mythtv-users] When Installing a second Pinnacle tune card, it's default configuration is analog, not the QAM Samsung my first card has.

I'm not familiar with Pinnacle but it looks like this card needs to be able
to load specific firmware (without which it won't work!). For Hauppauge
cards you need to download & unzip the firmware package and put the '.fw'
file into /lib/fimware.

Here are the related entries from my dmesg:

[  995.289823] cx24116_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload
[  995.289835] cx88-mpeg driver manager 0000:00:09.2: firmware: requesting
[  995.293443] cx24116_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload(2)...
[  998.868838] cx24116_load_firmware: FW version
[  998.868868] cx24116_firmware_ondemand: Firmware upload complete

I suggest you do some Googling around something like "Pinnacle HD 800i
firmware" .

Hope that helps!
