http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to make this card work in a touch screen kiosk running Ubuntu 10.04, kernel 2.6.32-45-generic This card seems to use the s5h1411 chip instead of the s5h1409 the modules are expecting. I've patched the cx88-dvb module as per this thread, but this doesn't seem to have made a difference. The errors I've noted in dmesg are: tveeprom 5-0050: Huh, no eeprom present (err=-6)? and s5h1411_readreg: readreg error (ret == -6) cx88[0]/2: frontend initialization failed cx88[0]/2: dvb_register failed (err = -22) cx88[0]/2: cx8802 probe failed, err = -22 I also notice there's no mention of (HowTos)
