[mythtv-users] Errors when starting Live TV

I am unable to watch live television.  This seems to be due to a
combination of video and audio settings.  I have set audio to be ALSA:front
but in the log it says ALSA:default.  I set this in Settings - General.  I
recorded a live stream from /dev/video0 and watched it in mplayer.  The
recording worked well -- both video and audio were present.

One error that I could not locate on the net was:

NVR(/dev/video0) Error: Failed to query vbi capabilities (v4l1)

I'm not sure what that means.

I have gotten live television without audio in the past when my audio was
configured incorrectly so I wonder what I've done wrong here.


I welcome any feedback.  I've been working on getting to this point for
about two days.
