If you have a dedicated PCI card and really want to use Xen then I suspect that the most likely way to do things will be to fiddle with pciback a bit more. Bear in mind that you're making the domain with the PCI card trusted (potentially as much as dom0 itself) by giving it a PCI device to play with.

Thanks for the reply, Mark...

How do I go about debugging the domU handoff. Why does it think that the device is not present. I see it in /sys/bus/pci/drivers/pciback, and I see no bttv or bt878 drivers listed. So I think the blacklisting is working. Is there another log file that I can check, or perhaps is there a set of debug modules that I can install?

I noted that this issue came up earlier on the mailing list and no resolution was posted. It may very well be a distinct issue with this type of capture card.
