[mythtv-users] Problems tuning PVR 250

I am running the coax out from a digital cable box into the tuner of a
PVR 250 and I can't get it tuned in at all.  I have been running
`/usr/lib/ivtv/ptune-ui.pl &  mplayer /dev/video0` and trying all
different combinations.  Things definitely change and range anywhere
from a black screen to a screen with wavy colors, to regular old snow.
The tuner
shows up as a type 2 and I added that option to modprobe.conf:

# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
options tuner type=2

Any help is greatly appreciated.
