[AG-TECH] Multiple Hauppauge cards

For whatever reason the kernel is only seeing 2 cards and it should be
seeing 4 (4 is the max default for the kernel to recognize). When you
boot, is there a way to see what the BIOS thinks is installed? Some
BIOS' will show a listing of devices before booting (you can hit the
scroll lock button to freeze the screen so it doesn't flash by before
booting). Are you sure all 4 cards work. Try removing two cards and
seeing if the other two are still seen. If they are, remove those two
and replace with the others to see if they seen. Also, what does the
file /etc/modules.conf contain?
