How to setup kozumi KTV-01C (chip bt878 rev11)

I have setup this card with gentoo 2008. In some others distributions like Ubuntu or Fedora, I’m sure it should be easier.

The card that I’m writing about is:

We can check if they loaded successfully:

# dmesg | grep tuner
bttv0: tuner type=38
tuner’ 0-0060: chip found @ 0xc0 (bt878 #0 [sw])
tuner-simple 0-0060: type set to 38 (Philips PAL/SECAM multi (FM1216ME MK3))

Install tvtime:

Then, in the kernel source directory, we run:

make && make modules_install y listo.

I got some hints from:
