You can now proceed to use your TV tuner by loading up XawTV.
In case you are not hearing any audio, you need to load the
# modprobe tvaudio
This was required for our ProVideo PV951 card.
XawTV is a powerful utility for TV display and capture. One of
the features that it lacks is the ability to quickly scan and set
channels. Alternatively, you can use kwinTV, one of the more
popular software that has this feature.
Once you are happy with the settings you can move the settings
into /etc/conf.modules by adding the following
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options i2c-core i2c_debug=1
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
options bttv card=42
options tuner debug=1
alias char-major-81-1 tvaudio
Happy TV watching in Linux!
