[Mageia-discuss] TV Card and Web camera confusion

I have a TV card (PCI) and a USB webcam. If I restart my Mageia, the TV 
card no longer works. I then have to go into TVtime.xml (I use TV time 
to view my TV) and then modify this line that I have included in the file:

   <option name="V4LDevice" value="/dev/video0"/>
   <option name="V4LDevice" value="/dev/video1"/>

Is there anyway to prevent the video call from changing at reboots?

I just bought a webcam for my 78 year old mother with the same TV card 
and I wouldn't want her to go through the same procedure each time she 
re-boots her Mageia.

Thanks for any help.
