Is there a way to integrate xawtv into mythtv?
Cause I want a one programm solution, for easy navigation with my remote.

Just use the xawtv program.  It outputs the video like a tv tuner with no
recording / buffering.  As such, it's much less load on the system.  It's
really bypassing MythTV, but it will give you an idea of your tuner quality.

Also, read the various threads in the archives about fine tuning (you can do
this with xawtv using the right/left arrow keys) and also read about
selecting the correct tuner type.
