Hmmm... did you test that with the current driver (i.e. the one in
2.6.16)? If I read the code correctly, the card option may get the
bttv driver running, but the dvb driver would fail with the message:
bt878_probe: card id=[0x0], Unknown card.
Btw, why does the system lock up? IRQ storms? Could setting
no_gpioirq for BTTV_BOARD_UNKNOWN avoid the lock up?
 In older bttv versions even with no_gpioirq set, gpio irqs
were enable for a short moment and may have caused irq storms.
But that was fixed some months ago.
