I will try to make it a parameter or something like that, for your card, though a
parameter looks ugly, seems like that's the only way out. Lack of testers held this
change back for this card. It would require me to search for the old changes 
again, thought that no one was interested in that change.

The unified interface is the libs that you find in the dvb-apps, which is used by 
gnutv and zap.

The easiest is to get things working with a command line application to work first rather 
than getting mythtv going on

It can be a bug in the HLCI part of the library or a bug in the driver that's causing this 
behaviour, of course this requires quite a bit of debugging.
