Reguarding the sound, I found I had to turn off Full Duplex to get it to
work under Mandrake 9.

The setup wizard doesn't actually look for fonts, it just
lists the one included in the MythTV distribution. You
could try modifying the setting in mysql (after you've
backed up your database ;-).

Well, then it should work perfectly 8-). I'd start by
checking the patch cable. It should go from the tuner card "out" (not
"remote") to "line in" (not headphone, etc.). Unmute line-in and you
should hear the patched through analog audio from xawtv. If it still
doesn't work and this is a new card for a second system, try swapping it
with the card in the first system to see if the audio on this card is

If both cards work on the first machine but not the second, then the
problem is probably the configuration for the bttv or alsa drivers.
