got ot to work now. i read in some textfile that you dont need to run
the mythsetup if there is no analog card, so there were some settings
missing in the database and myth just crashed. now i got it up and
running, but its a bit unstable. if mythchannels is dropped, is there an
other way to use my dvb card with mythtv? i really like the idea of
having a vdr like software for my budget card.
