FWIW, a channel scan works successfully for me with a pcHDTV 3000 card in an 
AMD Athlon 64 box running Gentoo, so I don't think this is a 64-bit issue per 
se, unless maybe it's one related to specific versions of MythTV or drivers. 
That said, the pcHDTV 3000 gives me poor QAM reception, in both my Athlon 64 
box and in a Celeron-D 3.06GHz box.
