    Unhappy Tevion high-speed dvd maker

    Hi, all!

    Last year I've purchased the "Tevion high-speed DVD maker" from Aldi. I use it to convert videos made with a Sharp 8mm camera. The device came with windows-only software, and as I am moving to linux (ubuntu) now I need to figure out how to make it work.

    The device is identified as
    Bus 007 Device 005: ID eb1a:2860 eMPIA Technology, Inc.
    By Googling I discovered that the appropriate module is em28xx.
    But the devide didn't connect after modprobe:

    [  438.408460] em28xx v4l2 driver version 0.0.1 loaded
    [  438.408535] usbcore: registered new interface driver em28xx
    [  442.405219] usb 7-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    [  442.477619] usb 7-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    Googling some more gave me a link to Ubuntu Wiki, which described a procedure to install another version of em28xx, but that didn't help either.

    The only other useful information about using the device under linux is here.

    Any ideas on what to do next?

    I've decided to repeat installation of new em28xx module, and suddenly notices that the module was being build for kernel 2.6.24-19, whilst I'm using 2.6.24-21. After removing all the packages for old kernel and redownloading/rebuilding em28xx the device got recognized (at last!).

    Alas, my joy was short: it seems that this version of em28xx breaks uvcvideo:
    $ modprobe uvcvideo
    FATAL: Error inserting uvcvideo (/lib/modules/2.6.24-21-generic/updates/uvcvideo.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    $dmesg[  185.808260] uvcvideo: disagrees about version of symbol video_devdata

    [  185.808887] uvcvideo: Unknown symbol video_device_release
    Currently searching for a solution.

    Ok, took the move and upgraded to alpha version of Ubintu 8.10. The device is now recognized, but as a "PointNix Intra-Oral Camera". Will try and find the correct device# for it.
