On my old system, I was running Fedora 8 x64 and had an nVidia card. I
had to replace the MB and processor (long story), so the board that I
have now (an ASUS M2A-VM board
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131174) has an
on-board ATI Radeon XPress 1250 chipset. With that being said, I was
getting the exact same behaviour with my previous setup in regards to
the analog and DVB presentation.
If this same thing is happening on 2 different sets of hardware, and 2
different distros, doesn't that point to some sort of kernel issue? I
seem to recall reading somewhere about the newer kernels having better
DVB support. How would I get this in MythBuntu (I've always been a
RedHat/Fedora guy so Ubuntu is pretty new to me).
