The "Remote encoder" message is bad, as I've said before. You've got
something seriously mis-configured.

The "test" in "test_ioctl" implies just that... it's a tool for testing/
playing with your ivtv-driven card. You *shouldn't* need to use it with a
working Myth setup (except in rare cases), as Myth manipuates all the ioctls

Here are the outputs. I used another program to generate these mysql-data.(I
dont know how to get the output to a text file...). But results are the
same. This is how I configured my myth.
I did try to give the computer a fied IP, also no succes.
What I really don't understand is rhe fact I have to change, in order to
make a capture with sound, the test_ioctl -v input from 3 to 2. This setting
i cant make in mythtvsetup however...
I studied the X-term output mythbackend is giving me. It says something like
can 't connect to QSocketDevice. I don't know what that means but it can be
the problem why I can't watch Live TV!
Thank you very much for helping me this way. Makes the world definitly look
like a better place.
