/dev/video0 problem

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have a tv tuner card installed and am trying to also use my Dell in-monitor webcam. It plugs in via USB and for a few seconds lights up...then dies. All my video applications default to the only video device they see: the tv tuner card. Does anyone know how to force the tuner card to be (say) /dev/video1 so that my /dev/video0 can be the webcam? I'm using a Dell SP2208WFP which appears to be at least showing up in dmesg: uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Monitor Webcam (SP2208WFP) (05a9:2643) uvcvideo: UVC non compliance - GET_DEF(PROBE) not supported. Enabling workaround. uvcvideo: Failed to query (129) UVC probe control : -32 (exp. 26). uvcvideo: Failed to initialize the device (-5). usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo USB Video Class driver (v0.1.0) usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio format_by_fourcc(0x32315559) NOT FOUND Alas, whether this means it is simply a non-compatible device or not, I've no clue; however, in Fedora 8, briefly (no idea what was the mojo), this worked fine with Cheese...I took several videos and photos with it. Then, perhaps due to trying to get the Hauppage tv tuner to work, Cheese no longer could find the webcam. Many thanks in advance for any and all help. (HowTos)
