I have:

Linux video capture interface: v1.00
bttv: driver version 0.7.63 loaded
bttv: using 2 buffers with 2080k (4160k total) for capture
bttv: Host bridge needs ETBF enabled.
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).
bttv0: Bt878 (rev 2) at 00:0b.0, irq: 10, latency: 32, memory: 0xe3000000
bttv0: subsystem: 144f:3000 => TView 99 (CPH063) => card=38
bttv0: model: BT878(TView99 CPH063) [autodetected]
bttv0: enabling ETBF (430FX/VP3 compatibilty)
i2c-core.o: adapter bt848 #0 registered as adapter 0.

"Or heck, let's just make the VM a _real_ Neural Network, that self
trains itself to the load you put on the system. Hideously complex and
evil? Well, why not wire up that roach on the floor, eating that stale
cheese doodle. It can't do any worse job on VM that some of the VM
patches I've seen..." -- Jason McMullan
