different kernel/modules install, rather than mess with what (mostly)
It fixed mine, using 2.6.3-4mdk sources. Will update and try.
(I didn't attempt the patch, just the bttv release tarball linked to
Silly question, but you _DO_ have the channel fine tuning set right,

Linux user time: Linux kernel 0.99 ish. On the Amiga. (early ~1.xx days
PC time.) You dual booted Linux as it had MORE applications...
