What kernel patches are you using with 2.6.6 to support the pcHDTV card? I
haven't been able to get it to work under mythtv on 2.6.6. Are you running
any special patches to mythtv to support it? I'm running the latest CVS,

I noticed the same thing. I compared mythprogfind, which doesn't
exhibit this problem, to mythfrontend and the difference seems to be the
Init call at mythfrontend/main.cpp:940. When commented out, the problem
goes away. QT-3.3.2 supposedly has a fix for a problem similar to this.
Not sure why this works yet.
Other than that, FC2, Gnome w/ the stock 2.6.6 kernel is working with my
PVR350 and pcHDTV cards.
