i have been using Gentoo and also this DVB-S2 card for years under Linux be recently i built a new system based on Gentoo and want to install this card but the kernel option which I've used before and seems to be the most documented one for this card doesn't seem to be be available any longer.

Does anyone know if this has been supper seed or support dropped for this.

CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_DVB

the card is an Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2

Hi Rooney.

AFAIR there were some movement into the kernel.config file some time ago, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't dropped.

So please let us know what exact kernel version(s) do you speak about.

Then I would check my kernel.config of my VDR box, when I'm later at home an give you a hint afterwards, cause one of my 4 TV cards, is the same as yours.

If you are in hurry, did you try to find it with the search function of nconfig/menuconfig/xconfig searching for CX88_DVB?


Best regards, Andy.

Now Rooney,

back on my VDR box which is actually using kernel 3.8.4 you could find the relevant entry here :

Device Drivers --->
Multimedia support --->
Media PCI Adapters --->
DVB/ATSC Support for cx2388x based TV cards (and more as below).

I use this modules:
zgrep CX88 /proc/config.gz

Code:
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_ALSA=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_BLACKBIRD=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_DVB=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_VP3054=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_MPEG=m


Belonging Hardware for listed modules above, not exactly the same as yours, but should work nonetheless:
Code:
00:0d.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder (rev 05)
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. Nova-S-Plus DVB-S                                                                   
        Kernel driver in use: cx8800                                                                                                 
00:0d.1 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [Audio Port] (rev 05)               
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. Device 9202                                                                         
        Kernel driver in use: cx88_audio                                                                                             
00:0d.2 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [MPEG Port] (rev 05)                 
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. Device 9202                                                                         
        Kernel driver in use: cx88-mpeg driver manager                                                                               
00:0d.4 Multimedia controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23880/1/2/3 PCI Video and Audio Decoder [IR Port] (rev 05)                   
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. Device 9202


Hope this may help you out..

Just checked mine which was Kernel 3.4.9 but i upgraded to 3.7.10 in an attempt to fix this issues.

i did a search which returned the same as you.
