I just double checked, no the input device is set to MPEG. But im
starting to think that you might be pointing at something,
if i lsmod i see the bttv driver loaded. Maybe devfs loads this module
once myth trys to access /dev/video0 ?
Either way after myth doesn't work i can still get mpeg video with cat
into a file so nothing seems to be messed up.
I just don't get it :(
( i tryed kernel 2.4.20 and 2.4.24 now and it gives me same behaviour )
