Thanks for the help guys. Unfortunately, it still doesn't work. I did the online update. I already did that when I installed Suse, but now I also updated the kernel. Then I did the mknod thing. So now I have a /dev/video0 again. But when I want to scan for channels from the configuration center, I still get the following error message:
v4l2: open /dev/video0: No such device or address
Also in kdetv, the card doesn't show up in the menu "Devices". Any more tips?

Yesterday I did a clean install of Suse 9.1. My tv-card (Pinnacle PCTV) did get recognized properly and I could watch television on my pc. The problem I had was that I didn't have any sound. I tried different sound settings from the configuration panel in kdetv, but it wouldn't work.
This morning when I turned on my computer I couldn't watch tv anymore. The appropriate device (bt878) was no longer in the list under "Devices" in kdetv. I removed the card from the configuration center and added it again. When I tried to scan for channels I got an error message saying that /dev/video0 doesn't exist.
How can I fix it and how do I get sound?
This is a bug that I had as well, you will need to recreate the /dev/video0.
use the mknod command, cd into /dev as root and issue:-
mknod video0 c 81 0
thats a zero not a capiatal o after the 81 that should then make the /dev/video symlink active again, since I have done this I have had no problems.
