I am using Ubuntu 12.04 with 3.2.0-26 kernel and I just added a DVB-T card. I installed the media_build as shown in this page. After that the Restricted Drivers appeared on the screen I installed the firmware for DVB Cards.

lsusb shows: Bus 002 Device 005: ID 048d:9005 Integrated Technology Express, Inc. Which is my card.

lsmod shows these things regarding dvb:

dvb_usb_it913x         22173  0     
dvb_usb                32369  1 dvb_usb_it913x    
dvb_core              110010  1 dvb_usb    
rc_core                26343  2 dvb_usb_it913x,dvb_usb

Nevertheless there is no /dev/dvb on my system and Kaffeine does not find the TV turner.

How can I install my TV Card?
