That is interesting.  That means that at least your script is being 
called.  Mine is not.  I am using the V4L drivers with a pc3000 card 
(yeah, I know, it is overkill, but I just moved from Portland, OR where 
I was able to get OTA HD channels, and am now in a place where I get 
none).  Is there some configuration I need to do on the front end?  I am 
using 0.19-fixes from about 6 weeks ago.
