    Well, I've put my card into a windows machine and it doesn't appear to
be broken.  BeyondTV can use both tuners.
    I'll check out the ivtv list.  If you make any progress, can you let
this list know?

  I have the same problem, and a lengthy thread over in the ivtv-devel
archive.  No solution yet.  I've  tried just about everything.

            I've just installed a PVR-500, and I'm having a problem.  I can
use video1,
    but I get only static on video0.  It seems like the problem is that it's
    actually able to change channel; I think it's tuning channel 1 which I
    get, since the static looks just like a tv that doesn't have an antenna
    cable hooked up.  It's possible that the problem is not that it's not
    changing channel, so I don't want to rule anything out.

            When I try to use ivtv-tune, I get:
    # ivtv-tune -d/dev/video0 -c60
    /dev/video0: 439.250 MHz

    # ivtv-tune -d/dev/video1 -c60
    /dev/video1: 439.250 MHz  (Signal Detected)

            Which seems to be saying that the channel change on video0
didn't succeed,
    while the change on video1 did.

            I'm hoping that there's someone else out there who has had
similar problems
    and can give me a pointer.  I'm also not rulling out that it's just
