A whole bunch of views but no comments... I must have done something
Any guesses why mythbackend causes live tv to be played on the tv?

I must say, I love Myth...
I am nearly there with the setup, but have some silly things happening.
What I am running
Redhat 9 kernel 2.4.22
Matrox marvel g400-tv
I am trying to use the g400 for capture and tv-out via frame buffer.
I followed many how-to's and here is where I am.
when I boot up I maually load modules :
modprobe -k i2c-matroxfb
modprobe -k matroxfb_crtc2
modprobe -k matroxfb_maven
I then switch the to tv:
matroxset -f /dev/fb0 -m 0
matroxset -f /dev/fb0 -m 3
matroxset -f /dev/fb0 -o 1 2
...and my TV displays my x-session!! life is good.
When I then run iv4l1 I lose my tv out :( and cannot get it back.
Even more puzzling is when I then start mythbackend, I get live tv out
my tv, no menu, mythfrontend, not loaded.
FYI, If I switch modes back to matroxset -f /dev/fb0 -m 1 I can then
myth fine on my monitor.
I am also trying to use alsa as described, but it is not all the way
