    What happened when you tried it in another machine or with a newer kernel.

    Re: use PCI Express graphics slot for dvb-card?

    I have not gotten to that part... first I need to find a machine to use

    But I have compaired dmesg logs from machine with and without the card and unfortunatly no difference. I am worried that the PCI Express slot is some how wired to only support graphics.

    It could a) be that I have "broken the camels back" and have no more power for the card, b) the card is DOA or c) the BIOS does not support anything else in the slot

    SOLVED use PCI Express graphics slot for dvb-card?

    Well unfortunatly... the card works fine in another mobo.

    I would therefore have to conclude that some motherboards (from at least before 2004) do not support the use of anything but Graphic Cards in their PCI Express slots. This can be a BIOS issue which I cannot rule out.

    There are not garanties that it won't, but I would highly daubt it.

    Hi,

    Are you sure it's a PCI-e x16 slot and not a PEG. PEG slots only support Graphic cards/The BIOS doesn't initalise the slot for PCI-express cards.

    I found this the hard way with a PCI-express analog input card in the company.

    Well I am almost sure because the manual, spec. list, etc. state:
    PCI Express x16 graphics
    And therefore my thread.

    I have therefore gotten a newer board and here they state the same but in the BIOS I can specify whether or not there is a graphics card in the slot.

    Have you tried updating the bios in the first board?

    Yep, but no luck here - it is a special ASUS board made for HP.

    Cheers
