Using Slack 12.1-

It appears to be loading all modules. However I cant find a device to
point software to. Perhaps this is a udev problem?

This has a Coextant BT878A NTSC tuner and some sort of Phillips ATSC
tuner, or at least that's what the card is stamped with.

It's definitively the 3250 model albeit the card gives it an extra zero
(32500) on the model sticker.

Anyway I get it to load modules and be recognized (dmesg confirms this)
but I'm stuck at this point.

First off I'm new to HD capture cards and related terminology. I see
the term DVB thrown around a lot and am not exactrly sure what software
that function needs to run.

So I decided to just try to get the NTSC side going first. However I
can not get tvtime to go as udev is not creating /dev/video0

TIA
