I have this in my /etc/devfs.conf:

perm    cd0     0660
perm    cd1     0660
perm    da0s1   0660
perm    da1s1   0660
perm    xpt0    0660
perm    xpt1    0660
perm    pass0   0660
perm    pass1   0660
perm    pass2   0660
perm    pass3   0660
perm    lpt0    0660
perm    bktr0   0660
perm    tuner0  0660
perm    cuaa0   0660

Everyting up to lpt is for using atacam functionality (e.g. CD burning). 
Bktr and tuner are for the capture card (I have an old Miro Bt848).

And the /boot/loader.conf has:

So here I load the bktr module upon booting. I don't use any special kernel 
config for bktr (I have other options for other hardware).

As far as detecting your card, try pciconf -l or -lv. Also dmesg can show you 
what it has detected and done so far. My card because it's so old needs some 
PnP probing but even that works. Kldstat shows which modules are loaded.
