Thanks for the response,
It seems xawtv doesn't work with pvr350. I've read that scantv does.
But when I do an apt-get install xawtv for fedora core3, The xawtv I
get 3.x.something, doesn't come with scantv. So instead I got Xdtv and
compiled. It now has something called xdtv_scantv which is the exact
same thing with a new name.
The problem now is I can't get any channels, only static, and
sometimes static with some volume.
I'm starting to doubt my card. I'll give it a shot on an XP machine tomorrow. :(
