The cx88-blackbird driver is not loading after upgrading from 2.6.19 to 2.6.20 (gentoo) of the kernel. I seem to be able to get dvb streams from the PCHDTV 5500 card but and wondering what I am missing and how to fix. Not sure if there is a new option in .config that I should be looking at. I have not seen anything yet. Any Help?

None of the pchdtv cards use the cx88-blackbird driver.

Really. I wonder how it loaded in 2.9.19? Is there a good place to find some documentation on what each of the drivers do, for my knowledge.

Thanks,

Brian

It loads in 2.6.17 also, but doesn't do anything. The DVB wiki http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page has info on what the drivers do. The Blackbird is an MPEG encoder chip for NTSC (maybe PAL too) video; the 5500 doesn't have it (though I wonder if that's what the unpopulated spot on the card was for)

Thanks for the answer. MPEG encoder for NTSC makes sense.
