I get this error on mythtv v0.6 startup, with xawtv running:
> mythtv
 channel set: Invalid argument
 Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
 VIDOCGMBUF:: Invalid argument
 VIDIOCSAUDIO: Invalid argument

I saw your answer to John Tapper who has a similar problem -- "get V4L

I'm using AIW Rage Pro 128 with the Gatos km_api/km_drv modules which
supplies V4l support.
AVview and xawtv work fine for me.
In fact, AVview sees a V4L device (/dev/video0 Km) and allows AVI recording.
What's mythtv's need in V4L that's different than AVview ?
(Or what else am I doing wrong?)
I've run setup and filled the DB without error.
