[mythtv] Followup to "no picture" problems

I wasn't subscribed to the mythtv-dev mailing list, so I didn't know
you'd replied, Issac, since you didn't CC: me.

This is the output of mythtv in its entirety:
Probed: Television
Probed: Composite1
Probed: S-Video
Probed: Composite3
Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
libavcodec: CPU flags: mmx mmxext 3dnow
setting sample rate to 44100 failed
Could not detect audio blocksize

There aren't any errors logged that I can see, in the kernel log or
anywhere. When my line-in is unmuted, mythtv turns on the bttv audio
input, but no video ever appears. I do get a mythtv process which takes
up about 20% of my CPU time, though.

The sound device is my default device, /dev/dsp (which is a symlink to
/dev/sound/dsp). Nothing's using it, either.

The ringbuf.nuv file continues to get added to, so it is at least trying
to record something. It makes no difference whether I use mpeg4 or
rtjpeg for the format.

Any ideas?
