I'm having huge difficulties with using Pixelview pv-bt878p+ rev.9d with Linux. I'm using a stock Debian kernel, version 3.2.0-1-686-pae #1 SMP.
When I load bttv module for that card I get this:
[ 683.700105] bttv: 0: unloading [ 690.772928] bttv: driver version 0.9.19 loaded [ 690.772941] bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture [ 690.773719] bttv: Bt8xx card found (0) [ 690.773767] bttv: 0: Bt878 (rev 17) at 0000:00:0f.0, irq: 12, latency: 64, mmio: 0xcfdfe000 [ 690.773817] bttv: 0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC *** [card=0,autodetected] [ 690.775504] tveeprom 0-0050: Huh, no eeprom present (err=-6)?

I know I can add some options to the module, so I've been trying with such:
modprobe bttv card=72 tuner=38 radio=1 gpiomask=0x3F audiomux=33,32,35,35,40
modprobe bttv card=70 tuner=38 radio=1 gpiomask=0x3F audiomux=33,32,35,35,40
Which I've found somewhere on the internet, and it fixed one's problems with similar card. For me it was unsuccessful.
lspci for that card gives me this:
00:0f.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 11) Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 12 Memory at cfdfe000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K] Capabilities:  Vital Product Data Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2 Kernel driver in use: bttv 00:0f.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11) Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 12 Memory at cfdff000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K] Capabilities:  Vital Product Data Capabilities: [4c] Power Management version 2
Perhaps some of you know how could I progress in my endeavour to start using this card under linux?
