Hello !
I'm relatively new to this, so i might need some help in getting my tv
catrd to work.
I checked the chipset beforehand, it uses a Fusion 878a but apparently
no (to FreeBSD) known tuner.
dmesg'ing after reboot shows the following:
bktr0: <Brooktree 878> mem 0xcfbfe000-0xcfbfefff irq 18 at device 5.0 on pci3
bktr0: Pinnacle/Miro TV,<no> tuner.
pci3: <multimedia> at device 5.1 (no driver attached)
Maybe anyone has an idea, how i can make FreeBSD recognize the tuner ? I
appreciate any ideas !
