I have tried using both drivers.  Neither works with Mythtv. As far as I
can tell, xawtv is using the V4L drivers (/dev/video0) which work fine

If this is so, then how is it that xawtv is able to work with the
HDTV3000 card? Worse still, at one point, when I first set this whole
thing up, mythtv worked! But the first time I stopped and restarted the
backend daemon, it was broken and it's not worked since. This suggests
that the problem may be in some part of the data that is loaded only
when the backend starts up.

All of this is enough to convince me that it SHOULD be possible,
somehow, some way, to get mythtv to work with the hardware and cable
system that I have. Heck, for a short time, it DID work.

I'm starting to feel like I am missing something really really basic
