Thanks Joe, that's all it took.  Now I have video but
no program guide info and can't record anything.  I
started a new thread on my new problem. 



I have a similar setup working flawlessly.  My setup:

Leadtek GeForce4 MX 420
Hercules Fortissimo III
Hauppauge WinTV-radio

Suggestion: make sure you are using the latest NVidia
binary drivers 
your video card.  I don't think my setup worked with
the open source
XFree86 drivers.

Also, what is you TV card?
