NOT A DRIVER ISSUE!  The output from azap indicates that everything is
working properly... Your problem is in your mythtv setup -- I cant
help you with that here, it's off-topic.... There's a mythtv-users
mailing list - you can ask for help there.

Meanwhile, here's a way to test your card...

you already have azap running.... keep it running, but be sure to use
the -r parameter:

azap WABC_HD -r

... It should report : FE_HAS_LOCK ... do not kill it... Open up
another shell, and run:

mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 -cache 8192 -framedrop

This will show the stream on your screen..... (use man mplayer to
learn about the other command-line arguments -- you do not need to use
-cache 8192 or -framedrop, but these are needed on some slower
systems)

This WILL work.... (unless you dont have mplayer installed)

Cheers,
