Hi Stephen,


There is actually only one transmitter in the area about 13 miles away
from here. If only there were more than one I'd then be able to point my
aerial at the better one!


Kind regards,

How about this for a thought and it has happened to me....

Are you in range of two transmitters? Is MythTV picking up the weaker
signal from the second transmitter? I've had this happen to me on both
MythTV and a Topfield box. Your DVR could pick up the stronger signal. 

Just a thought.

Have you tried a different program other than mythtv? (shudder!)   kdvr

I have an Avermedia 771 and a Hauppauge 500 in the same box, both work
fine. Regarding the 771, I would concur with the other suggestion to
check your aerial cable and make sure it's up to spec.

The T-500 is a good card. Make sure you read the wiki entry at 
which has lots of useful info.
