This is my first post and I am very new to Ubuntu. I have a Hauppauge TV card and have somehow downloaded V4L-DVB but I still can't get it to work the device does not appear to recognise the driver. I dmesg I get this

[ 10.094621] cx88[0]: Your board isn't known (yet) to the driver. You can
[ 10.094623] cx88[0]: try to pick one of the existing card configs via
[ 10.094624] cx88[0]: card=<n> insmod option. Updating to the latest
[ 10.094625] cx88[0]: version might help as well.
[ 10.094629] cx88[0]: Here is a list of valid choices for the card=<n> insmod option:

Can anyone tell me how to use this insmod option so that I can connect my card to option 37

Many thanks in advance

Well in the end I sorted this out myself - so feeling pretty pleased. Just in case anyone else want any help this is what to do.

Go to this website


Follow precisely the instructions for Installing The Drivers and Firmware

Thats it! After that Kaffein could talk to the card and scan for the channels
