I pulled test-mpeg2 right out of the tarball, since I didn't get it from
the ebuild either.  Try different stations, only certain ones will even
put out data for me.  My cable box also can show me on the diagnostics
screen (channel 999), which channels will be able to be output.  It
indicates the ones that won't work are copy protected.
