I appreciate the help guys. I didn't get any feedback from the ivtv group. I
tried several versions of ivtv, including 0.2.0-rc3b. All exhibit the same
behaviour: a lot of static and I cannot change channels.
I tested the m179 in a windows PC, and it worked fine. I put my PVR-250 card
in my AMD64 system, and it works fine. So, it's a problem with ivtv and the
m179, at least when coupled with an amd64, it seems.
When I run:
> ivtvctl -I
Check SAA7115 input signal
ioctl: VIDEO_STATUS = Bad
That's probably a pretty good indication of the problem, but I don't know what
to do about it.
Come Monday, I'm going to return the m179 to avermedia and get another
PVR-250. They're a little pricey, but at least I can get it to work. Unless,
of course, someone can save me the hassle by guiding me in the right
direction. Tnx again.
