Using your instructions, I figured out that the driver will not load using
modprobe. That is why the computer has trouble booting with that driver and
the HVR-1500 card selected.I also tried copying the relevant code and
putting it into the DViCO FusionHDTV7 Dual Express area to see if that
worked. I had the same results as when I tried loading the card as a
HVR-1500. I cannot get any signal from the card that way. I know the card
is getting a signal because it shows a signal when loaded as a digital card.
If you have any suggestions I would appreciate them. Thank you.
