[mythtv-users] PCHDTV-3000 2.0 settings

Could someone who is successfully using a PCHDTV-3000 card with the 2.0
pcHDTV drivers under MythTV please tell me what your Capture Card
settings are? My card works fine with xawtv so I know my problem is in
the Myth configuration somewhere, but I can't figure it out. It's
driving me nuts because at one point when I first tried installing
MythTV I *did* have it working. Now I get "cannot obtain sync" errors if
I try to watch live TV, or at record time if I schedule a recording. I
have already tried completely uninstalling and re-installing and
reconfiguring the entire bloody suite from scratch, but the problem
persists, so I am surely just doing the same wrong thing over and over
again (I've probably tried redoing the mythtv-setup configuration a
dozen times now). I'm on FC3 with the at-stable RPMs for 0.18.1-112 and
a 2.6.10_770 kernel if that matters.

What I've got is card type PCHDTV, device /dev/video0 . This does cause
the card's inputs to be properly recognized: they show up as
"Television" (coax), "S-Video", and "Composite". In xawtv, selecting
"Television" works fine. In MythTV, I get the "Cannot obtain sync" error
every time.

Thanks for any help,
