Just got back from three days out of town with no Internet access, so
didn't get a chance to reply sooner.
If both sides of the card work on mplayer and tvtime, it's not a driver
I have two 5500s in my combined BE/FE system running Mandriva 2007 x86-64.
Both sides of both cards work fine (though I admit that the analog
picture quality isn't as good as I'd like). A previous poster is correct
- you set it up as a DVB card and then set up the analog portion under
"analog settings" in Mythtv-setup.
Now, what took me the longest time to figure out is that you need to set
up two different sets of channels, one for each side (and being in the US,
I had to set up two Zap2It accounts to grab their respective data). Once
I had that set up, I was good to go.
If need be (I'm not on that machine at the moment), I'd be happy to list
my "analog settings" if anyone wishes.
