i'm not sure what card(s) made the recordings.  hopefully i'll be able
to determine that tonight.  i hadn't thought to tie it to a specific
card before asking for help. :)
i'm fairly certain i'm not using ivtv 0.10X.  on my production box i'm
using whatever version of ivtv the earliest version of KnoppMyth with
MythTv .20 was using.  and the other box was a fresh install of
MythBuntu 8.10 with all recent updates applied.
