[linux-dvb] Hauppauge HVR-1800 not working at all

Using Mandriva 2009.1 with HVR connected directly to analog cable.  
Using 32-bit kernel 2.6.29.3-desktop-1.mnb.

TVtime and xawTV both open but display only snow.  Channel scanning yields 
nothing.

If I boot into Vista and load MediaCenter, open liveTV and watch a channel. 
Then close MediaCenter, exit Vista and boot into linux, TVtime and xawTV (if I 
am lucky) might open-up and perfectly display the TV channel that I was last 
viewing in Vista, but will not change channels to another station no matter 
what I do.

Please see the following outputs below. I would appreciate any
suggestions to resolve this. Not having hardware problems since WinVista's
media center works perfectly with this hardware.

Thanks
George
