Generally speaking you should be using overlay. Are you getting any channel 
video at all?  I assume you have selected television as your input source in 
xawtv right?  

Actually just reread your message, what happens if you hit "c" at that point 
in mythtv to change the video input? Hitting c multiple times will cycle 
through the input choices.  

Are you running ver 0.7 of myth? I seem to vaguely remember the same 
experience when I was first running 0.6.

Also what is your other hardware? Video card etc?
