Okay, I've made a new discovery concerning this card; when I add the
DVB input to MythTV, it detects it as 'Air2PC v2'. No matter what I
try (re-installing the card, re-adding it to MythTV, re-installing the
driver), it refuses to detect it as a KWorld card. Has anyone ever
seen an instance of MythTV misidentifying a card like this?
Thanks in advance!
