Stability problems (bktr).

Hi all,

My /dev/bktr device is not working stable, sometimes it works fine but most 
of the time I receive this message


pci0: <multimedia, video> at device 6.0 (no driver attached)
pci0: <multimedia> at device 6.1 (no driver attached)

Other times it's :

bktr0: <BrookTree 878> at device 10.0 on pci0
bktr0: could not map memory
device_probe_and_attach: bktr0 attach returned 6

Again other times my unit fezes during the kernel load (not execute, 
directly after the countdown).

Exceptional everything works fine and I have to run XFree86 and FXTV 
directly after boot to initialize the card for stable performance like 
described in

My kernel add for this device:

# Hauppage WinTV/PCI Add by Zeo 25/06/2003
device          bktr
device          iicbus
device          iicbb
device          smbus

My system board is a MSI-KT3Ultra2-R attached the output from dmesg in a 
txt file with latest BIOS flashed in the memory.
Try a other PCI slot and setting the IRQ to 11 in the BIOS, but this didn't 
solved the issue.
I'm using FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE.

More info on my system are on (phpSysInfo).

I need to have this card running for testing/debugging the new version of 
the bktr2jpeg-2.0a9 tool under FreeBSD. (the release version will have a 
other name because more devices are sported). A very nice demon to capture 
your webcam and host it with a built in http demon.

Thanks for reading this mail, hoping on a hind about how to solve this issue.
Kind regards, Zeo Smeijsters.
