Hi List,

I'm using an Avermedia 771 and although I have no difficulty tuning to a 
channel am not receiving any data once it has tuned. The

mythtv szap # ./tzap -r BBC ONE
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
tuning to 618000000 Hz
video pid 0x0000, audio pid 0x01b2

mythtv szap # cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

I'm running Gentoo's latest 2.6.12 with the 2.6.12 patches from the 
linuxtv.org download site.

The kernel modules seem to be fine:
mythtv test # lsmod

Can anyone help me investigate what might be wrong with my system?
