I have a PVR card:

02:0a.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC16 (CX23416)

... and the best approximation in the 3.17.7 kernel is:

<M> Conexant cx25821 support
<M> Conexant 25821 DMA audio support

I also have:

[*] Analog TV support


I still have no luck integrating this. It would be encouraging
to see a device node that looks like this:

/dev/video0

At least that was what I saw when this box was in an earlier
universe. That is, I've shelved the drives that once worked
in this old box, got new drives and upgraded with new s/w.

Can old h/w be integrated into new s/w?

Is this a Hauppauge PVR150? I'm running one of those. You need firmware as well.

Why such an old kernel? That version isn't in even in portage. I'd go for at least 4.4.52

EDIT:
Code:
X3 ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CX234
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX2341X=m

Tony, if you have zcat, then you also have zgrep (saving a useless use of zcat ;)

Sure enough!
