Nothing wrong with "timed out" there -- it's just a peculiar message
that doesn't seem to have any relevance to anything we care about.

Dunno.  I don't use the EPG to watch liveTV here.
This part could be a playback issue, which in mythtv
is totally 100% independent of the tuner device.

Instead of trying to watch liveTV, just tell mythtv to record something.
Then go to the media --> recordings menu, and try to play it.
Little steps here..  :)

There aren't any (some work, but all seem to have issues with analog).

Totally excellent, as a digital tuner.  Awful as an analog tuner (mythtv only).
