I just purchased a Hauppuage WinTV 401 card, and it came with the cx881 
chipset rather than the bttv.  I've done a little research and read that 
this basically will not work at this time.  Can anyone confirm this as 
true?  I'm using Debian Sarge, kernel 2.6, on a tyan kt400 s2495 mb, 
with an athalon xp 2700 processor.  I can only get one channel to 
display, Myth locks up when I change channel, and I'm not sure if the 
problem is one of bad configuration or lack of compatibilty.  I'm a 
pretty much a newbie when it come to linux hardware configuration, so 
let me know what I should look for if you can.  Thanks in advance.  Dave
