[linux-dvb] DVICO HDTV PCI and MythTV issue

Hi All,

  I am hoping somebody on this list can help with a very annoying 
problem using a DVICO HDTV PCI card with MythTV.

  The card works perfectly with Xine, but MythTV receives corrupted 
audio (continuous machine gun like noise) with a good picture ONLY on 
certain channels. Is anybody else experiencing this problem???

  I am in Sydney, Australia. The free to air stations that don't work 
are all the Nine Network (Chn 9, 90, 99), Ten Network (Chn 1, 10 but 11 
works!) and ABC Network (only 2 doesn't work). All other 15 or so 
channels are received beautifully.

  Note, I used the "add 166667" trick on the frequency file for the Nine 
Network in "dvb-t/au-sydney_north_shore" file of dvb-utils in order to 
get a valid channels.conf. Xine uses this file perfectly receiving all 
stations. I have let MythTV do it's own scan - it finds all stations. It 
just can't receive the particular stations above. I have also tried 
importing the above channels.conf file - exactly the same result.

  Is their a difference between the way Xine would tune the card and the 
way MythTV would tune the card?
  I am using Fedora Core 6 (2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 #1 SMP i686 athlon i386) 
and I am running MythTV installed using Yum from ATrpms 

Many thanks,
