yes, it is connected to an external STB, I'm only using one input on
it pvr500 (I used to use both, but I have 2 other tuners now and
really don't need one that is just analog cable).

The weird part for me is that it is working fine for recording shows,
just not live, maybe there is higher tolerance for how long it takes
the card to initialize when recording vs live?

IVTV 0.9.1
Kernel  2.6.19-gentoo-r5

I will try to get more information when I am home, but there are no
errors in the ivtv messages in dmesg.
