I've been a slakware user for almost 9 years and been running the 2.6.10 
kernel for a week or so. Now the fun starts. I can 'modprobe bttv 
i2c_hw=1 card=0x71' and 'modprobe dvb-bt8xx' and lsmod gives the following:

Module Size Used by
dvb_bt8xx 8068 0
dvb_core 71464 1 dvb_bt8xx
nxt6000 6404 1 dvb_bt8xx
mt352 5124 1 dvb_bt8xx
dst 12040 1 dvb_bt8xx

bttv 141648 2 dvb_bt8xx,bt878
video_buf 16900 1 bttv
firmware_class 7296 3 dvb_bt8xx,sp887x,bttv
i2c_algo_bit 8840 1 bttv
v4l2_common 4864 1 bttv
btcx_risc 3976 1 bttv

videodev 7296 1 bttv

When I try to lock onto a known good signal with szap I get this:
'./szap -l 5150 -i'
reading channels from file '/root/.szap/channels.conf'

 >>> ank
zapping to 1 'ank':
sat 0, frequency = 3880 MHz H, symbolrate 25187000, vpid = 0x0110, apid 
= 0x0111using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
opening frontend failed: No such device or address

I looked in the /sys directory and there looks like a recursive linking 
of drivers to a higher level directory on the bttv branch.  That doesn't 
seem right.  :^)  I'm at a loss for why the thing won't lock on. Does 
anyone have a good how-to that I can look at? I've looked at the docs in 
the /usr/src directory and udev throws me. I'm also betting that this is 
easier than I'm trying to make is so if I can get the process down to a 
"Follow this checklist, step by step", I'll post it.
