Congrats, i'm glad that it worked.

If you want it to autoload on boot, you have to add it to your distro's autoload config. This varies between distributions, for example, on Debian it's /etc/modules and in gentoo it's /etc/modules.autoload . Please check with your distributions documentation to see what's right for you.


Out of curiosity, your tuner was supposed to be PAL right? Have you tried to watch TV yet, using tvtime or something? Did everything turn out okay? As well, i noticed that it setup your tv under /dev/video1 , do you have a webcam or something under /dev/video0?

I use RedHat 9 I don't know where I have to find autoload config. In /etc/modules.conf I have

alias eth0 8139too
#alias char-major-81 bttv
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
#i2c
alias char-major-89 ic2-dev
options i2c-core i2c_debug=1
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1
#bttv
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 bttv
alias char-major-81-1 tvaudio
alias char-major-81-64 radio
alias char-major-81-192 vtx
alias char-major-81-224 vbi
options bttv pll=1 radio=1 card=34 tuner=5 bttv_gpio=1
options gbuffers=4
options tuner type=5
options tuner debug=1
alias tvcard0 bttv

How I can autoload bttv module on boot ?
I have a webcam or /dev/video0

" Linux video capture interface: v1.00
pwc Philips PCA645/646 + PCVC675/680/690 + PCVC730/740/750 webcam module version 8.8 loaded.
pwc Also supports the Askey VC010, Logitech Quickcam 3000 Pro, Samsung MPC-C10 and MPC-C30,
pwc the Creative WebCam 5, SOTEC Afina Eye and Visionite VCS-UC300 and VCS-UM100.
usb.c: registered new driver Philips webcam
pwc Creative Labs Webcam 5 detected.
pwc Registered as /dev/video0.

I do watch TV and is OK because I'm in Europe and anything TV is here PAL... ( except France an Russia )
On weekend i'll "work" with the remote and lirc. i hope i"ll managed.
