Ubuntu

Comment 15 for bug 229879

has anyone tried installing newer v4l-dvb drivers

sudo -i

apt-get update

apt-get install install mercurial build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

cd v4l-dvb

make && make install

exit

or as i mentioned above dowloading the newest kernel from http://kernel.org and compiling it youself will also fix this

i for one can say that this used to fix the trouble for me however now in intrepid the stock kernel works fine for me.
