Ah yes, you were right. Normal us-cable, and tuner 17 solved my all my 
reception problems. That's right, to everyone out there, the ATI TV 
Wonder (non-VE) uses bttv tuner 17, not whatever it autodetects! That 
should be enough for archive searches to find. ;)

Ahhh would you look at that, it was there the whole time. :P  Thanks!

I figured that using btaudio would solve (or at least work around) this 
problem. However, I can't figure out how to get mythtv to capture from 
btaudio... I think the problem lies in that I'm using ALSA for my sound 
card, and btaudio is a part of the OSS and not ALSA drivers. I could be 
completely off base here. Anyway, kmix shows 3 audio line ins for 
btaudio, and setting any of them to record produces no sound in MythTV.
