Does tuning work at all despite the dmesg spam? In the good tradition of
multimedia, the spam may be normal. I'm not sure if I can ever get rid of the
spam frankly, maybe once I fold the iic stuff into FreeBSD7's interface, but
I suspect there will still be spam. Cxm makes similar spam.
I see its a Pinnacle PCTV Stereo card according to the vendor and product ID.
Are you sure you set the tuner api type correctly in the port options? Do you
know what tuner it is?
Perhaps you may want to try kbtv2 instead, as that's the codebase I'm
currently working on.
Amd64 is not tested yet, that's all. On FreeBSD6 I expect it to work.
