Hi Mike,

I had similar problems with Kubuntu Fiesty. Tracked it down to the
kernel version loading some but *not all* of the cx88 drivers
automatically. modrpobing the missing ones got the card working.


 The current kernel, 2.6.20, does not automatically load the cx88-dvb
driver when a program like mplayer requests to use it. This problem will
most likely be fixed in kernel 2.6.21, but in the mean time, you will
either need to load it using:

Also not all Nova-T cards have the same combination of hardware even
though they ship as the same model number. Some may require firmware to
run. See


Best of luck.
