Anyways, the problem I am having is with the MythTV
and the Philips saa7134
chipset capture card I use. Tvtime works perfectly, but the sound in myth
isn't working. Took me a while, but I have just realised it's the same
problem I had last time I installed myth (and I think I hacked the drivers
to make it work).. it doesn't detect the sound carrier properly and chooses
a 4.500 MHz, 5.500 MHz or 6.000 Mhz audio carrier at random.. and logs these
to the console.
I use a saa7134 card and a 2.6.9 vanilla linux kernel.
A problem I've encountered before is that watching tv with xawtv or
listening to the radio is fine (using the loopback cable into the sound
card's line in), but if I record from the sound card (with the mixer set
to record line in), I only get static.
This only happens sometimes, and if I move the line-in volume, it then
records ok. So I suspect something isn't being initialised on boot
(maybe in the soundcard's driver?).
This is with a soundblaster live.
