Does it work for you also if you do a cold start of your computer?
What I'm getting at is it works with just the budget-ci and tda1004x
Hauppauge Nova-t (Budget-ci & tda1004x)In the latest DVB code (after the "refactoring"), you only need
to load the card driver and it will find the frontend; it knows which
frontend you have based on the PCI ID of your card. As a result, a given
card driver (like budget-ci) needs the frontend drivers for every type
of frontend that has been used on a budget-ci card.
So it seems that both tda1004x and stv0299 frontends are possible,
so both drivers are required. This is slightly inefficient given that
you don't need the stv0299 driver, but considered acceptable.
driver compiled as modules only
I have a Nova-S, and my problem is that I need to reboot to get data
from the card (using stv0299 and budget-ci, kernel-2.6.10rc2, dvb-kernel
I belive I did. However at the time I was trying to soft out problems
