Anybody uses Spectra 8 (btb878) in FreeBSD?
The card model is that:

The manufacturer claims it works 100% under linux using BTTV 878.
I wonder if I can make it work under FreeBSD 7.2

After loading the module i got:

bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0x93007000-0x93007fff irq 21 at device 8.0 on 
bktr0: [ITHREAD]
bktr0: Warning - card vendor 0xaa0c (model 0x146c) unknown.
bktr0: Pinnacle/Miro TV, <no> tuner.
bktr1: <BrookTree 878> mem 0x93005000-0x93005fff irq 22 at device 9.0 on 
bktr1: [ITHREAD]
bktr1: Warning - card vendor 0xaa0d (model 0x146d) unknown.

bktr2: <BrookTree 878> mem 0x93003000-0x93003fff irq 23 at device 10.0 
on pci8
bktr2: [ITHREAD]
bktr2: Warning - card vendor 0xaa0e (model 0x146e) unknown.

bktr3: <BrookTree 878> mem 0x93001000-0x93001fff irq 20 at device 11.0 
on pci8
bktr3: [ITHREAD]
bktr3: Warning - card vendor 0xaa0f (model 0x146f) unknown.
bktr3: Pinnacle/Miro TV, <no> tuner.

I've also loaded:
36    2 0xc6bf1000 2000     bktr_mem.ko
37    3 0xc6c05000 3000     iicbus.ko
38    1 0xc6c09000 4000     iicbb.ko
39    3 0xc6c0d000 2000     smbus.ko
40    1 0xc6c14000 3000     smb.ko
41    1 0xc6c17000 3000     iicsmb.ko
42    1 0xc6be0000 11000    bktr.ko

Is something else I can do so my card could be properly detected and to 
be able to get signal/record on all 4 inputs (none of them are working).
