Yast seems to bomb configuring TV Card PVR-150

If I go into YAST to config my PVR150 it is detected.

It says under the number column (not configured) and under the card name WinTV PVR-150.

After I go though and configure it, no sound card connection, no IRC, US-Cable NTSC, etc and scan for channels (it finds what it should, about 70) and then I save the config.

During the save the TV module in yast closes while about 50% done with writing the firmware. According to yast it had a lot of other things to do, such as writing the configuration.

I don’t get an error from yast.

if I look in etc/modprobe.d/tv it is:
alias char-major-81 videodev
options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1
alias char-major-81-0 off
alias char-major-81-1 off
alias char-major-81-2 off
alias char-major-81-3 off

dmsg grep ivtv gives me this:

Anyone able to help me? This is a fresh install of suse 11.1, on a new pc. Everything works in winblows.

I have the same card and Yast got about as far along, but the card does work. “cat /dev/video > /tmp/test.mpg” should give you a viewable clip if the card is working. I created a one line shell script in ~/bin;
“mplayer -nocache -nolirc -nojoystick -nomouseinput -framedrop -vo xv -ao sdl -dr /dev/video0 -vf eq2,pp=lb”. (And a toolbar button that points to it.) Mplayer was the only thing I could get to work other than mythtv from the packman repo.The vlc player worked for me too, from the same repo - but I didn’t intall it this time with suse11.1. Mythtv is working perfectly for me but can be a pain to get working, too.
The mplayer man page and “mplayer --help” can can explain the options on the mplayer command.
-dr is direct rendering, if you run it in a terminal with the “-v” verbose switch, you should get confirmation if direct rendering works with your gfxcard, mplayer build etc.
-vf eq2 is a video equalizer controlled by the 1 to 4 keyboard keys. You can switch channels using “ivtv-tune -c 8”, to change to channel 8, for example.
Hope that helps.
