Do I recall you were trying to get Skype working?

I have an Ubuntu 8.10 box (well. Kubuntu really). It's not running Myth, but 
it has a PCHD-3000 card and a Logitech Web Cam.

Things work fine, but somewhere in the Skype setup you have to select the 
video device. It seems to default to /video0 (with interesting results), but 
once you set it to video1 (the web cam), things work fine.

Don't think it would make any difference, but this is an amd64 machine, 
running 64-bit Kubuntu.
