[mythtv-users] Myth can't tune pvr-250

I have a PVR-250, and using 'ptune.pl --channel 62', I can change
channels, and then use 'cat /dev/video0 > file.mpg' to get a perfectly
fine mpeg file.  So the driver seems to be working fine.

>From Myth, if I try to watch TV, I just get static with no sound.

I have the frequency set to us-cable.

Gentoo distribution with accept ~x86; everything current.
ivtv-0.1.9 patched with the 20040206 2.6 patch.
Mythtv 0.14

After playing with ptune.pl, I got it to tune to a channel, and I could
watch it in Myth, but trying to change channels in Myth had no effect. 
After that, changing channels with ptune.pl had no effect.  I even
rebooted, and it was still stuck on the same channel, so I powered down,
and now I'm just getting static from Myth.

I'm rather confused at this point.
