Interesting. I'm just today tryign to set up a MythTV box on Gentoo.
the hardware works from the command line. I think it's recording
within MythTV. My problem now is getting it to play back. What the
heck is X-Video and how do I turn it on?

Sorry - don't want to hijeck Frank's thread here. Send me a note off
lst if that's best although I think this is the sort ofthing that gets
difficult on AMD_64 from what I've read about.
