General Info

According to http://bytesex.org/bttv/ bttv is linux driver for TV cards based on the bt848 and bt878 chips.

BTTV Module Parameters

Do you have very poor color, very low volume and or channels off by one or more channels? Check that the bttv module is correctly auto detecting your card and tuner type.
At a command promt type dmesg, the lines you are looking for look like

bttv0: detected: ATI TV Wonder/VE [card=64], PCI subsystem ID is 1002:0003
bttv0: using: BT878(ATI TV-Wonder VE) [card=64,autodetected]
bttv0: using tuner=19
bttv0: i2c attach [client=Temic PAL* auto (4006 FN5),ok]

BRMy card is an ATI TV Wonder/VE so no changes are needed here. Since I am in the US I need NTSC, and my tuner is made by Philips (look at the metal box on the card) I did

rmmod bttv
rmmod tuner
modprobe bttv tuner=2

Note: You may need to set the card value as well

modprobe bttv card=64 tuner=2

this gives me the output

bttv0: detected: ATI TV Wonder/VE [card=64], PCI subsystem ID is 1002:0003
bttv0: using: BT878(ATI TV-Wonder VE) [card=64,autodetected]
bttv0: using tuner=2
bttv0: i2c attach [client=Philips NTSC (FI1236 and compati,ok]

BRThats it! Once you get the results you are looking for add the options to your /etc/modules.conf
add a line like

options bttv card=64 tuner=2

run depmod after you are done modifying /etc/modules.conf
