lspci -vmmnn
Slot:	03:04.0

03:04.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 02)
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 169
	Memory at fc001000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
	Kernel driver in use: bttv
	Kernel modules: bttv

Dual card with both Audio and Video separated in two. Doesn't work on parabola because the bttv module is not present in linux-libre which is probably the cause of the IO error in lspci.
