Hello,

I have this old TV PCIe card which can receive fm radio. I have tested ist radio receiver in win7 (that dual boots with gentoo) and it works just fine, receiving about a dozen of quality channels. Now I am trying to make it work in gentoo. I think I have installed all the required drivers for the card to work
Code:
# lspci
03:00.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Systems, Inc. CX23887/8 PCIe Broadcast Audio and Video Decoder with 3D Comb (rev 0f)

Code:
> lsmod

-----------------
but I don't seem to have any /dev/radio, /dev/radio0 or anything with radio in my /dev or /dev/v4l directory. I have /dev/video0, /dev/vbi0, /dev/video1 though.

My interest is in making the fm radio work. Since all the links I found by googling mention the /dev/radio[n], I am inclined to believe that I am missing something obvious or I have overlooked some important kernel flag(s). Anybody with a hint?

Other than checking all those kernel deps did you check alsamixer or try net-wireless/gnuradio commands?
