Yes, I started with that.  I had to add option lines to set my card and tuner types, and add debug switches to try to track down the problems.

Could you post your modprobe.conf so I can compare?

I've used alsamixer almost exclusively.  In Kmix, the mute seems to be the green spot.  What does the red spot do?

No audio when Mythtv uses the 878 tuner (the pvr250 is primary and works, but if it is busy recording, then the 878 is used for live tv, and I get no audio).

Thanks for the reply.
