Ah yes, there's an inscrutable mention about it at the bottom.
Assuming I'm supposed to include card=65 tuner=54 in the modprobe call,
I did, ran tvtime, and managed to watch a bit of American Idol. So, does
this mean I'm all set for mythtv? I tried it anyway, but didn't get very
far because my mouse pointer keeps disappearing when I start it. Any
idea why? Is it because I'm supposed to be using the remote? The
keyboard's arrow keys worked on some screens, but not others, so I
wasn't able to try the TV out.
