i'm running Gentoo with kernel 2.6.8-gentoo-r3. i have a Leadtek TV2000 
Expert card. as soon as I choose "Live TV" from the mythfrontend, the 
screen goes black and the backend starts spitting out an endless stream of

VIDIOCMCAPTURE0: Invalid argument
VIDIOCMCAPTURE1: Invalid argument
VIDIOCMCAPTURE0: Invalid argument
VIDIOCMCAPTURE1: Invalid argument

tvtime works flawlessly, so i know the card is ok and working. from 
doing a little research i decided to install the CVS snapshot of 
video4linux from bytesex.org. i disabled the v4l modules in the kernel, 
recompiled it, and compiled and installed the cvs video4linux.

unfortunately this didn't fix the problem; i still get the same 

here is my lsmod output
asmodeus:~/video4linux# lsmod
