Hi Community

I am struggling to enjoy DVB-T on my AverTV E506 PCMCIA card. It seams
I'm doing something terribly wrong but I cannot find the solution on my
own. I am grateful for any help provided.

What I did so far:

I'm running Gentoo with a 2.6.24-r8 kernel on my Centrino Laptop. I have
selected "Video for Linux" (nothing else, no cards, no frontends, no
chips..) as a module in my kernel configuration and compiled the
"v4l-dvb" drivers from the mercurial repository. I also have obtained
the (hopefully) correct firmware for my card.

Well when I plug the PCMCIA device in this is what dmesg shows me:

pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 1
PCI: Enabling device 0000:04:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)

Analog TV works with this setup, but I have no signs of DVB-T. No
/dev/dvb devices are created although the module for the Zarlink tuner
"mt352" is autoloaded when the card is inserted.

Apparently I'm missing something.

Any hints?

Best regards

Luke
