Unfortunately, with kernel 2.6.13-rc3 the Nova-T New Revision seems to
have been detected (modules like cx8800 and cx88xx were loaded), but VDR
did not find this card. Additionally, the USB devices (Nova-T-USB2 and
Cinergy T2 which normally works out-of-the-box even with Kernel 2.6.11)
were not detected. That´s why I tried it with the CVS version.
It really seems to be a basic problem with DVB drivers but I don´t know
how to fix it. :(
With kind regards
