At this point I would be happy to see vertical lines in the video
captured using my PVR-500. :)
It seems like the only input on my PVR-500 that gets anything (just
static unfortunately) was 6. Of course I am trying to run this in NTSC
mode not PAL mode. So that may be the difference with that setting.
And this is on the first tuner on the PVR-500, the second tuner does not
appear to get anything.
I am currently trying to use what appears to be ivtv 0.3.7. The
firmware I have is listed as dec-2.02.023-4. All from the ATRPMS repo.
Could the problem I'm having be that I don't have the correct ivtv
These seem to work just fine with the PVR-350 I have.
