[vdr] pvr-input no NTSC? Bad Picture, no sound

I'm running vdr-1.3.46 with pvrinput-0.1.1 and can't get any sound, or a 
clean picture.

All channels configured tune ok, but they have the top 2/3rds of the screen 
black & white with flickering distortion, a fuzzy bar below that and what 
looks like the remaining top of the picture, below that.

here's a bunch of my channels:
4 KOMO;KOMO:67250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1089:0
5 KING;KING:77250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1090:0
6 KONG;KONG:83250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1091:0
7 KIRO;KIRO:175250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1092:0
8 DSCP;DSCP:181250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1093:0
9 KCTS;KCTS:187250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1094:0
10 KTWB;KTWB:193250:C0I0:C:0:301:300:305:A1:12003:1:1095:0

(I gather the last 4 fields are arbituary?)

the frequencies I obtained from ivtv-tune -l
4       67.250
5       77.250
6       83.250
7       175.250
8       181.250
9       187.250
10      193.250

also, if I set the 3rd field to C0I999 (PAL) it has no affect.  If I set it 
to C0I1 (SECAM) it says 'can't start transfer mode' - which is what I would 

if I use ivtv, it works fine with freevo and mplayer:
[vdruser at media vdr-1.3.46]$ ivtv-tune -c4
/dev/video0: 67.250 MHz  (Signal Detected)

any ideas??
