[ivtv-users] Problem with installing an Adaptec AVC-2410 on Fedora 4

Hi Thomas,

Yes, after thinking about it I realised the earlier version of ivtv would have 
worked, but the sound would be badly distorted because the difference between 
the PVR250 which it was defaulting to and the AVC-2410 is that the AVC-2410 
has a CS53L32A DAC that needs setting to the correct sampling speed.
I think the later version of ivtv requires the firmware to be in a different 
location to the earlier versions, which may explain why it worked before but 
doesn't now.

There are other people on this list also running Fedora Core 4 and they will 
be able to let you know where to put the hotplug firmware files for your 

Best Regards
