4.11 is officially Pretty Old (and possibly "Officially Unsupported"),
but I'm not "official" in any way, shape or form.
You might try "man 4 bktr" and "man 4 meteor" on your 4.11 system;
I know the current version of the bktr manpage lists supported cards
for that driver.
Also, there is a "freebsd-multimedia" mailing list, I believe, which
might have people on it who are more finely tuned (excuse the pun)
in that direction.
Lost interest? It's so bad I've lost apathy.
