I have been working with trying to get MythTV running (mythtv-suite
(apt-get)) and it does actually work now.
I would like someone to have a look at the following and give advice on
what is needed and what is causing problems, or lacking something?

I use Fedora Core 3 i386 on an AMD64.
My Tuner card is a PVR250 and is classed as idx=11 type=2 in the start
of dmesg (not got a copy to hand)

I am concerned that since I managed to get mythtv working, I seem to
have lost the ability to use ptune-gui.pl and changing channels causes
the following error:


[root at b1 mythtv]# XS_Tk__Callback_Call error:Error:  changeChannel(SE8)

Tk::Error: Error:  changeChannel(SE8) failed!
 Tk::Widget::Callback at
line 1079
