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.
