Hi all, i am trying to build myself a htpc box and i am having some problems with getting my DVB-T card to work with mythtv. I am running ubuntu 11.04 and i have just installed the mythbuntu components on top of the stock install.

I can not for the life of me get it to work. and there really isn't much online about this card either.

I check the mythtv wiki and it sent me to linuxtv.org for a complete list of compatible hardware. i did find my card on there but the info is about 5 years old :(

Not working so far (Oct.2006). Shows up as three unknown PCI devices ID 0040, 0041, 0042 with subsystems 0044. Manufacturer Pinnacle Systems Inc. detected correctly.now i don't think this information is reverent anymore as you can see here

any thoughts???

EDIT: Or should i just get a new card, and trash this one?? if so, any suggestions?
