Hercules Smart TV 2 Stereo tuner

pci / 1540:952b

See bttv-gallery for a picture and some characteristics.

I'm not getting any sound directly off the PCI bus yet (see Btaudio (bt878). I don't know why (but I can get it through a patch cable to the sound card).

I use the following /etc/modules.conf :

alias char-major-81-*  bttv
options bttv card=100 tuner=38
options tuner force=0, 0x61 ignore=0, 0x60 debug=1

on a Linux 2.4.26 (Knoppix 3.4 based) using v4l2 (video4linux), xawtv, tvtime, xdtv, ... works fine.

If the kernel version = 2.6.10

In /etc/modprobe.d/bttv (or /etc/modules.conf) :

alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options bttv card=100 tuner=38
options tvaudio tda9874a=1 tda9874a_STD=6 tda9874a_AMSEL=1 tda9874a_SIF=2

on a Linux 2.6.10 (Ubuntu Hoary based) using v4l2 (video4linux), tvtime ... works fine.

If the kernel version > 2.6.10

In /etc/modprobe.d/bttv (or /etc/modules.conf) :

alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options bttv card=100 tuner=38
options tvaudio tda9874a=1 tda9874a_STD=8 tda9874a_AMSEL=1 tda9874a_SIF=2
options tda9887 port1=0 port2=0 secam=l

on a Linux 2.6.12 (Ubuntu Breezy based) using v4l2 (video4linux), tvtime ... works fine.
