its gotta be a bug somewhere though.  in my case, i'm on cable.  there 
is definitely data coming in, if the ivtv driver is for some reason 
stops working until i kill mythbackend and restart it (as i think issac 
is saying it must be) then having black frames wouldn't help.  i think 
there is something funky, i'm going to keep trying to figure out what 
might be going on.  i've seen that problem in the ringbuffer too many 
times, and stopping/starting the backend always seems to fix it.
