Hate to reply to my own message, but I figured out a kludge. I hadn't
realized Cable Frequencies were so different from Broadcast. I switched over
to using channel 86 and finetuning it by 32 and that seems to be working.
I'm getting stuff recorded. Only downside is when I try to view recorded
programs in mythweb I get a segfault, but hey it's a start. I'm pretty
excited I may actually be able to tape some HD finally. Wish me luck,

I have the pcHDTV, but I'm not totally up and running. I had it working by
itself, but broke it when I added 2 M179s. I'm just now getting a little
time to look at it again. I'm applying your patches right this second. My
problem right now is I can get the pcHDTV card working with getatsc, but it
doesn't work in myth. Is there a definitive guide on getting myth setup
properly for the pcHDTV. I tried the forum over there and the most recent
thing is stuff Doug wrote a while ago. I wasn't sure if it still applied. 

Right now, my channel with the best signal is 34 using dtvsignal. This is
the equivalent of 9-1 in titantv, so in the channel table I have the channum
as 9-1 and freqid as 34-1. The tvformat is ATSC. Now when I run dtvscan it
says the freq*16 = 9460, but when I run mythbackend with verbose output it
says the freq*16 = 4532. I'm guessing my problem lies somewhere in that, but
I'm not sure where to look. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

Does anyone other than Doug on this list have an HDTV tuner?

Just curious. I haven't gotten any feedback on my patches. I just found
a one liner bug in the hdtv-recording patch that would have prevented
almost anyone but me from using it, but no one pointed it out.
(I'll be posting a fix to that bug later tonight.)
