I've run MythTV on a system with an AIW and a WinTV card.
Here's how. Do not load the $#!^^% km module. Instead, load
the bttv module for /dev/video . From my modules.conf:

# ATI video4linux
#alias char-major-81    videodev
#options km_drv         km_debug=0
#alias char-major-81-0  km_drv
# BTTV video4linux
alias char-major-81     videodev
alias char-major-81-0   bttv
pre-install bttv        modprobe -k tuner
options bttv            gbuffers=8

MythTV playback works fine with ati.2+drm-kernel. Recording
works fine with the bttv driver. Everything is happy.

Hope that helps,
