[mythtv-users] SAA7133 angst!

I picked up a FlyVideo 3100, SAA7133-based card for my MythTV box
afterwards, and I've tried a whole bunch of things but I can't get this
card to work.
mythbackend crashes when I choose 'watch TV', leaving the following lines
in the log file:
2004-01-20 17:13:17 Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
Unknown video codec: open: Device or resource busy
open: Device or resource busy
and, xawtv simply won't show any video - it gives me a blank screen, and
in the shell window where I start xawtv it shows a whole bunch of ioctl
errors (i can't remember offhand what they are unfortunately.. overlay
problems i think) in its window.
dmesg reveals an interesting line, which is repeated...
tuner: TV freq (268435455.93) out of range (44-958)
I'm running Gentoo, with a vanilla-sources 2.4.24 kernel and the kraxel
v4l2 patch from bytesex.org applied. I've tried the snapshot video4linux
patch too, still no joy.
I'm inserting the module as follows:
modprobe saa7134 card=2 tuner=2 (which corresponds to the FlyVideo 3000)
Any hints/suggestions/past experience from anyone? thanks.
