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,
