[mythtv-users] Pvr250 and black screen

When i run my mythtv and try to watch tv it becomes just black. I can
watch using mplayer on the /dev/video0 device, and changing channels
with ptune.pl.

I have the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 card using 0.2.x ivtv drivers.

The console i ran mythtv keeps repeating this:
QSocketDevice::writeBlock: Invalid socket
2004-12-02 01:00:55 Error writing stringlist
Remote encoder not responding.

And the server log only says:
Unknown video codec
Please go into the TV Settings, Recording Profiles and
setup the four 'Software Encoders' profiles.
Assuming RTjpeg for now.
Unknown audio codec
Won't work with the streaming interface, falling back 
VIDOCGMBUF:: Invalid argument

I've added the pvr in "TV Settings, Recording Profiles", but what im i
missing here?
