Given the changes the 800i driver have been through, you will be much
better off if you use the latest code available at

http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

As of this morning, all patches related to the 800i so far have been
merged into the master tree above, so it should work without problems.
The only time that one may consider not using the master tree is when
you know for sure that there are patches related to your device that
have not been merged.

If you still cannot get it working, post here.

Good luck!

Agian, I must say thank you for helping someone that is rather new to linux.  Ok, here is my set-up.  I am running ultimate edition ubuntu 1.6.  I followed the directions on downloading the tree and installing from this website

When I run lspci -v in terminal  I get this:

I
 was having problem with the sound card being disabled, but I figured that out.  When I try to start myth tv back end, I log out restart my computer, and when I log back in, I lost my internet connection.

I did not have any of these problems before this.

Any help would be greatly apprecated.
Thanks
Ed
