Hi Sid, everything looks nice on the dmesg. The usb line numbers depend on
the hardware order, so it's not a problem, and the line registering the
interface must be there (it's when /dev/dvb is added, so if it's not there
you can't comunicate with the device). I think the other usb modules should
not give you any problem... If you modified in some way the source code it
would be nice to post it, just to have a look. You should also try latest
firmware (I think there was a 1.2 version which fixed som i2c problems).
And finally I just prefer to use kaffeine that v4l-apps... but that's just a
matter of taste.
Also try with the small antenna included with the device, I don't manage to
get signal from an amplified antenna in linux while the "small and crappy"
one works perfectly.
