[linux-dvb] Problems with ATI USB Hybrid

Hi All,
    I am trying to install an ATI TV Wonder HD 600 USB card and not
having any luck. No matter what I try, there is no /dev/video  and also
no /dev/dvb.  The module seems to load OK, but the card is not found.
Yast sees the card, but only identifies it as a USB device and not a TV
card. I'll include what info I have. I would appreciate any help
offered. I am trying my best to eliminate Microsoft from my systems.
This driver problem is one of the last major headaches. I'm not sure if
this matters, but I need to set it up as NTSC-M with us cable. Channel 3
will be the only channel used.

Yast Hardware information states:

Pertinent lsmod info:

lsusb gives me this:

dmesg shows:

Xine posted a couple of warning messages:

Jul 8 12:26:44 Opto xinetd[3495]: No such internal service: chargen/raw

Jul 8 12:26:45 Opto xinetd[3495]: Port not specified and can't find

Jul 8 12:26:45 Opto xinetd[3495]: No such internal service:

When I open Xine and try to connect to DVB. it simply states:

Input plugin failed to open mrl 'Sorry, No DVB input device found

Thanks in advance,
Ronnie Bailey
