If you already have applied the 
dvb-lgdt3302-qam256-initialization-fix.patch, then don't bother with 
-mm2 ... There is another bug in -mm2 that requires the patch in the 
video4linux tree (from my previous email) in order for anything to 
work.  You have nothing to gain from -mm2 besides the

I can't get mythtv to work with my board at all... I haven't had a 
chance to mess with it yet.  I have been putting off re-partitioning my 
hard drive in order to install debian sarge.  Hopefully mythtv will be 
easier to deal with once I get around to that.  I have been testing 
using a combination of azap and mplayer.  Xine has given me successfull 
results as well (but no audio).  If you need directions on how to run 
this, let me know.

Does your board have TWO coaxial input jacks?  I think that you have the 
Gold-Q board.  My Gold-T board only has one coax input... I don't have 
the answer for you on this one... maybe someone else knows, or you might 
be able to ask the mythtv guys.  If you find the answer, please let us 
know ;-)
