>> Hi! I've been trying to get my two DViCO FusionHDTV 5 Lite cards working with a new install of FC9. Everything seems to work just fine except that the video I get from the cards is corrupt (see video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH1tsiPB8us). I know the cards are fine, as they worked on this machine previously using FC5 and they currently work if I boot into Windows XP.

>> The cards are correctly auto-detected as card 135 with tuners 0043 & 0061. I scanned for channels using dvb-apps and used a script to cut down the ~250 channels found to just those that would tune (presumably, the unencrypted channels). Of those 56, they all have the corruption seen in the video.

Thank you for the suggestion but that doesn't seem to be the problem
I'm having. I didn't think it was since it occurred over all the
channels but only when in linux. To make sure, I ran a cable directly
from one of my tuners to the cable outlet, bypassing my amp, and
tested it. I got the same corruption (the same level of corruption,
Any more suggestions?
