Actually 9 times out of 10 that IS the case, however the TV Wonder does have 
some issues with tuning.... I've experienced the same thing here in 
Vancouver, BC, Canada and I know a few people in outlying areas who 
experience the same thing.

Also there are multiple tuners that will work with the TV Wonder, dunno about 
the VE, I've had success with tuner=2 (phillips ntsc) and tuner=8 (temic 
ntsc) and one or two others.  I'm currently using the temic tuner as that is 
what it is detected as under Win9x and under linux if no tuner argument is 
passed to bttv.  Oddly enough, it you take the cover off the tuner, it most 
definitely is a Phillips one. Using the Temic tuner argument does seem to 
give a cleaner signal though <shrug>.
