Hi Folks,
I've been using MythTV for about 6 months now and really enjoy it and 
appreciate the work that's been done on it.  I've ironed out most of the 
wrinkles I've had along the way except for one.  I am using a Japanese OEM 
version of the YUAN mpg600gr (the purple one using saa7173).  I got it at 
a store called J&R in Japan.  This card is similar to the PVR-250 except 
it is low-profile and uses the saa7173.  I've downloaded and compiled the 
drivers from (http://linux.paken.org/index.php?Linux%A4%C7ITVC16-STVLP1). 
The only problem I have is that my video has two pixel lines of static at 
the top of the recording.  Has anyone seen this problem with other cards - 
are my modules options wrong or my recording options within Myth?  Anyone 
else using this card with or without my issues?

DVD-Special-2  -> I've also used default, but I heard this is better.
