hmm, that's just not right!

Does it do that for other stations, too, or just 100.1? I noticed that for
some stations, it would round to a weird number (101.7 goes to 101.69 for
example), but never just tuning to 00.0.

Have you tried tuning with gnomeradio? I just tried that on mine last night
and it worked like a charm, it could even scan through the stations and stop
on valid ones. (I had to use aplay in the background to play the audio from
it, however, since gnomeradio assumes that the audio comes into the sound
card as an input).

As dumb as it sounds, have you tried rebooting? I managed to hang the ivtv
drivers a few times yesterday playing with ivtv-radio. If you try to use
ivtv-radio while mythbackend has control of the device, for example, it
prevents either one from working properly until you reboot (I did a hard
reboot just to make sure). Lesson learned - stop a recording before trying
to use ivtv-radio :-)
