Greetings all,
Ok, I feel really dumb but I have 
having a devil of a time getting linux to see my capture card.  I believe I 
am doing everything right, but then again, I don't know.
I downloaded the 
file posted about a week ago stating it was a patch for the pinnacle pci card 
(800i).  I extracted the tz file, opened terminal, cd directory to the 
folder, did sudo make, sudo make install and restarted my computer.  When I 
start mythtv back end, I get no card can be found error.
I'm sure I am really 
close to getting this to work.  Any help for a linux nOOb would be greatly 

Can you tell us a little more about what you are 


What file did you download from where?


What does the output from dmesg say about
