Hi to all,

I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) on a AMD64 ...

uname -a
Linux xxxx 2.6.27-9-generic #1 SMP Thu Nov 20 22:15:32 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux

My problem is to get my MSI TV at nywhere TV Card running. The issue is, that the dvb module cannot be loaded - for whatever 
reason ... :-(

Here is some more detailed information about my system:

I have manually specified the following in /etc/modprobe.d/options

options cx88xx card=13

since the card wasn't automatically detected by the system ...

And finally manually loading the dvb modules gives:

modprobe cx88-dvb
FATAL: Error inserting cx88_dvb (/lib/modules/2.6.27-9-generic/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-dvb.ko): No such device

This is strange, since the *.ko is available:

 ls -al /lib/modules/2.6.27-9-generic/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88

Any hints how to solve this problem? Seems that my card is not supported ... 

Many thanks in advance
