The CI module does not have anything to do with basic detection..

Yes, most probably .. the reason is that dst_check_ci itself is not 
there in the latest CVS tree..
Try to get the latest CVS drivers running, after that we can sort 
problems out if any ..

with the latest CVS drivers, the dst module takes in parameters verbose 
and debug

so use modprobe dst verbose=5 debug=1 to load the module.. let's see 
what happens.. you need the bttv and the rest of the modules as 
described earlier ..
