Two usb video capture stick with em28xx driver 
get http://mcentral.de/hg/~mrec/em28xx-new/ ... tip.tar.gz and untar
cd em28xx-new-*
make
find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -name "em28xx*" -type f | xargs rm -rf
find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -name "tvp5150.ko" -type f | \
xargs rm -rf
mkdir -p /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/empia
cp *.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/empia
cp tvp5150/tvp5150*.ko *.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/empia
strip -d /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/empia/*.ko
depmod -a

/etc/modprobe.d/local
options em28xx card=14 vbi_mode=0 alt=4
options em28xx card=43 vbi_mode=0 alt=2
These two options lines are really working

With alt i use a lower bandwidth for usb

For Kernel >= 2.6.27 card indexes changed, no alt setting is needed and only one option line in /etc/modprobe.d/local is working:

options em28xx card=9,38
