Hi,

I am trying to get my dvb card running but i just doesn't work and I am
running out of ideas. I'm using gentoo and tried the current kernel
which is 2.6.13-gentoo-r5 and also 2.6.11 with patches.
The latest attempt was to get 2.6.14.2 kernel sources, apply the
v4l-kernel and dvb-kernel CVS sources and build everything like it's
described in http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/How_to_build_from_CVS.

I am sure that the card has a Thomson 7579 tuner rather than a Philips.
It's written on the can: DTT 7579
This is an Australian card and we're using PAL over here.

This is what happens:
# modprobe bttv
bttv: driver version 0.9.16 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).

I tried modprobe bttv tuner=42 but the result is the same:
linuxtv-dvb-apps-1.1.0/util/szap/tzap "Digital"
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'

status 1f | signal a6bf | snr c2c2 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK
and so on..

but cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 is just empty

Any Ideas how to get that thing running?
Here are some more outputs:
