[mythtv-users] HD3000, Sarge, AMD64 SMP, 0.19 from deb, Could not get card info for card #0! Subtype: Success!

I've been trying to get a dual HD3000 backend-only system working since
March, and finally gotta buy a vowel. I've built MythTV systems twice
before (PVR-350, Ubuntu Hoary, Sarge) but this is the first time with
HD3000 cards, and first time with a backend-only machine.
I'm using Sarge - the AMD64 unofficial distro, with an SMP setup,
kernel 2.6.15 from backports. I'm using the 0.19 debs from Christian
Marillat's repository, have mastered getting mythtv-setup to connect to
X remotely (that is, I don't have X installed on the backend) and am
tantilizingly close to getting some TV recorded. MythTV works - except
I have the pcHDTV tuner cards set up as DVB-T devices. However, the
capture card setup page in mythtv-setup says:
"Could not get card info for card #0! Subtype: Success"
I get the same info for card #1. However, when I switch to a DVB Card
Number that I know doesn't exist, I get:
"Could not open card #3! Subtype No such file or directory"
So I know that MythTV sees SOMETHING there, but is having trouble
talking to it.
The only messages I see on the list archive are from people using
versions 0.17 and 0.18 (and maybe older). Didn't see anything recent
(or particularly useful) about this.
I previously tried using the pcHDTV card type (which I now hear are
mainly for the HD2000 card - gee, somebody should label it as such!),
and while the pcHDTV card type would scan channels and get lock onto a
number of OTA digital channels near me (Atlanta, GA, USA) it would only
record completely black 1080i mpegs.
I know the first responses will be "give me more info". Happy to do so.
I haven't found anything in backend logs that I thought was revealing,
but please, ask away.
Any help is appreciated!
