I have got hold of a "3DeMON PV951T" Video/Tuner BT8xx card, but
I am having problems.
The fxtv program works fine for a while, but I every so often
(particularly when switching video size) I get one or more
"bktr0: ioctl tsleep error" messages (as mentioned in bktr's
The TODO file says that this message is "without consequence"
but this isn't the case for me. As soon as I see the message,
my system stops responding, and I have to hit the reset switch.
On one occasion after seeing this message, I started getting
messages from pciide0 complaining about missing interrupts,
and there was still nothing I could do but hit reset.
I am wondering what could be causing this, and whether anyone
else has had similar problems? I am running on an AMD
K6-2 400 system.
What is the significance of the card type to the bktr driver?
It is recognised as a "Miro TV" which is (probably?) wrong,
but there is no option for a "3DeMON" so I don't know what
I should force it to. The bktr driver reports that my card
has no configuration EEPROM. Is there anything I should
look for on the board to know if it is just a rebadged
version of one of the supported cards? And if so, would
this be likely to solve my problem?
Any help would be appreciated.
