Hi Michael,

Yeah you got me... I haven't got the mplayer setup yet... Anyway it's not 
hard though... but there are some glitches while mplay is using oss, it 
sometimes says device is busy (after fresh reboot), and it either output 
video with no sound for a few seconds or simply quit... but I used the 
alsa-oss wrapper script and it's working fine! It is great to see some 
output after all these efforts... I'll do some google on mythtv settings and 
try to locate the problem... Thank you very much.

~Guang

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,
