Yes, the only thing I was unsure of was how to merge/patch the files
(I'm not a coder), I did all that and rebuilt the kernel and it's still
NOT WORKING. However, It does work better then before. Now I get 4-5
fuzzy channels and one that comes in clear, but it's in Black n' White,
and Its the home shopping network, ick. which patch was that btw?
Its detected now as this:
bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xec7fe000-0xec7fefff irq 17 at device 4.0 on
bktr0: tuner @ 0xc0
bktr0: MT2032: Companycode=4d54 Part=04 Revision=04
bktr0: Detected a MSP3440G-B6 at 0x80
bktr0: Pinnacle PCTV Rave, MT2032 tuner, msp3400c stereo.
pci2: <multimedia> at device 4.1 (no driver attached)
and again I try'ed all the sysctls etc and its a no go, thanks for the
