thanks for the reply.  i'm running KnoppMyth and it did recognize the
bt878 card automagically. :)  i was just hoping there was some
documentation a little more tailored to the bttv cards.  i was able to
get a picture but unable to change channels or do anything else.  then
MythFrontEnd locked up on me. :}
i'll google a bit more.
