[mythtv-users] OT? pchdtv 5500 analog tuning problems

My pchdtv 5500 will sometimes fail to tune to a channel or give me strange
color bands in my picture.  It also only seems to happen when I go from
tuning an HD channel to tuning an SD channel.  When I go to watch a
recording, sometimes I'll get 1-2 good frames and then the rest of the
recording is all static video/audio.  Other times, the picture will be in
black and white, except there are horizontal repeating bars of red, green,
and blue that are each about 1/10th of the screen in width, which also bob
up and down a bit.  Other times, I'll get the bars and after a few seconds
they go away.

This didn't happen when I had my tuner in my other computer while I was
trying out mythtv.  At that time, I was using a 32 bit kernel (not using 64
bit), but I was using the same mythtv package, linux distribution, and
kernel version.  I have since tried using the trunk and 20-fixes - neither
of which solved the problem.

So is this a known problem with pchdtv 5500 cards in mythtv?  Or, is it a
known problem with the 64 bit driver?  Is there anything I can do to try and
fix it?
