Help with tv tuner setup

Hello again. I've added this to my kernel config file:


Now dmesg shows:

%dmesg|grep bktr
bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xe6000000-0xe6000fff irq 5 at device 9.0 on pci0
bktr0: Leadtek Winfast TV 2000, Philips FR1216 PAL FM tuner.

This time, it says PAL, but I feel it is still not right, because my
tuner doesn't have FM radio!
Also, I have tried most of sysctl hw.bt848.tuner values, even set
hw.bt848.format to 0 as suggested - still no luck. Could it be, that
europe-east frequency table is not right for me? The bad thing is that
I don't have windows right now to see those frequencies that make this
tuner show something. Last thing I could do is modify the source of
something where these frequency tables are defined..
