Thanks for the feedback. I will try and get some support from the ivtv group.
I just wanted to make sure it wasn't something silly, like not loading a
needed driver or needing to tell the tuner the input is "cable", rather than

I didn't realize there was a composite input. I'm trying to use the coax
input. ptune-ui.pli is set to tuner 0, though I've played with other
selections. That, at least, does seem to work.

Thanks. I'll try that version, and see what the ivtv group suggests. This may
pose a real problem. My plan is to use a PVR250 (which I haven't installed
yet) and the m179, and an hdtv card. If I need and old version of ivtv for
the m179, can I use a later version for the PVR250? I don't know how that
would work. Maybe I'll need to move one of the cards to a frontend machine.
But, first things first. Get the m179 working. Thanks again.
