Hi All - ok I have given up after getting so close.  I am at the  
early stages of installing mythtv.  I have a wintv-dbx model 401  
card.  From what I know this is supported by v4l via cx8800 module.   
It loads on boot up - even seems to have the correct tuner:

cx88[0]: subsystem: 0070:3401, board: Hauppauge WinTV 34xxx models  
tveeprom: Hauppauge: model = 34132, rev = J158, serial# = 2927402
tveeprom: tuner = Philips FM1236 MK3 (idx = 58, type = 4)
tveeprom: tuner fmt = NTSC(M) (eeprom = 0x08, v4l2 = 0x00001000)
tveeprom: audio_processor = MSP3416 (type = 14)

great - should be working??  Well, I try xawtv and get fuzzy screen 
(NTSC, usbcast). scantv finds no channels and tvtime gives this  
interesting message:  tuner refuses to tell us the current  
frequency.  This must be related.

  don't think I can continue installing mythtv unless I get this  

I would be most grateful if someone could help. Running debian  
unstable, v4l cx88 0.0.4, linux

thanks -
