Problem: All TV Tuner apps I have tried only return static for each channel (tvtime, xawtv, mythtv-frontend) -----Card works under Windows XP with included Leadtek software
Info:
1. Leadtek WinFast 2000XP RM NTSC; Mythbuntu 8.04; Celeron 1.1ghz 512mb ram; 2/2 pci slots used-- one for 3com 10/100 nic, other for this card

6. I configured all apps to use frequency-table us-cable, NTSC, and Television as source.

I am so frustrated at this point. I have searched far and wide for a solution to this issue, and nothing seems to work. From what I can tell, the correct driver (bttv 0.19.17) is loaded for the bttv module correctly. The card was not autodetected as NTSC (2) at first so I added 'options bttv tuner=2 card=34' to /etc/modprobe.d/options and 'bttv' to /etc/modules which resolved that issue. No matter how I try watching TV, all I get is funky static on each channel. Again, all was well under Windows, so it's not the card/cable/connection. Any help is sooooo appreciated.
