MythTV is a PVR and media application.  Part of that is recording TV,
but not (really) playing it live from the card.  Even "live tv" is
buffered and played through the normal mythtv recording system.

TVTime is a PURE "read from video source" tv program.  It does nothing
else, and is a good "isolation test."  Think of it as wget, and mythtv
as firefox.
