Sorry for disturbing, i have a strange problem on my TV recording box, and i' 
completely stuck with it...

I have installed Mythbuntu 8.04, 9.10, and 10.10 for trying to wtach and 
record TV with MythTV, but none of them can handle my TV tuner card, wich is a 
BT879 card (i have tried it with a BT878, but the errors remained the same).
(Card 1 is a Lifeview Flyvideo (879), Card 2 is an Avermedia TVphone 98 

So after installation, i detect the card with MythTV backend, it is OK, it 
recognizes the card. Then when i start to scan channels, i cannot use the 
"Scan channels" button in backend... It happens in every Mythbuntu version.
(I have added the capture card, added an Input Connection, as the Myth manual 

The card and bttv module must be OK, because it works fine with TVtime, VLC, or 

So if anybody can help me, i will give a big thx for it :)
