I was using Myth for long time now and no problems. So I bought new
system (Dell Dimension 3000) and PVR350 to complement my old bt848 or
maybe I will buy 250? Anyway, setting up the first myth box was easy,
but now with this new one things are just not going anywhere.

So, my pvr350 is 48132 rev K168. tveeprom says:
tvee: Hauppauge: model=48132, rev=K168, serial#=7335372
tvee: tuner=<unknown> (idx=68, type=-1)
tvee: tuner fmt=NTSC(M) (eeprom=0x08, v4l2=0x00001000)
tvee: audio_processor=MSP3440 (type=11)

with 0.1.9 but if I use something like 0.1.10-ck115i. then it says:

tveeprom: Hauppauge: model = 48132, rev = K168, serial# = 7335372
tveeprom: tuner = LG TAPE H001F MK3 (idx = 68, type = 47)
tveeprom: tuner fmt = NTSC(M) (eeprom = 0x08, v4l2 = 0x00001000)
tveeprom: audio_processor = MSP3440 (type = 11)

But, no video. If I do cat /dev/video0 > foo.mpg on 0.1.9, then I get:
cat: /dev/video0: Input/output error
saa7115[0]: decoder disable output
saa7115[0]: decoder enable output
ivtv: Timeout waiting for data!
in dmesg. The ck115i just haings (no timeout, no i/o error)

I kind of got the tv-out to work, but the quality looks bad. My X settings:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "NTSC TV"
        HorizSync       30-68
        VertRefresh     50-120

        Option          "DPMS"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "TV Screen"
        Device      "Hauppauge PVR 350 iTVC15 Framebuffer"
        Monitor     "NTSC TV"
        DefaultDepth 24
        DefaultFbbpp 32
        Subsection "Display"
          Depth 24
          FbBpp 32
          Modes "720x480"

If anybody have any suggestion, please let me know.

Btw, debian testing, 2.4.27, P4 3GHz non-smp kernel stock from debian.
