Interesting, I'll have to try that next. I took a little look, and the 
bttv driver *was* autodetecting the wrong tuner (some PAL tuner, when 
I'm almost certain I have a phillips one). After changing that to 
tuner=2, I still had a pretty noisy picture (compared to the same 
channels under windows, a lot more static). I'll see if the HRC setting 
makes a big difference or not.

In a probably unrelated problem, I'm having a weird issue with sound. 
I'm not using btaudio (not compiled into my kernel and I can't find the 
where in menuconfig I can choose to compile it), but I am getting audio 
through the soundcard connection. Oddly, however, it's a *lot* quieter 
than windows, and I only get the left channel, not the right. I double 
checked my ALSA mixer settings, and the aux line is muted and has full 
record volume set. Any ideas about this would be appreciated. :)
