Gene. I looked on the pchdtv site out of interest. There is a post on page 2 
of the "General pcHDTV topics" forum where some guy has digital working, but 
not analog. It may be worth looking at that post to see what modules he has 
loaded for dvb, and comparing them to your lsmod.

You say also that you're only 3 miles away from the transmitter. I know that 
FM radio is more directional than AM, and no doubt digital TV transmissions 
are the same compared to analog, and just 3 miles away brings you down to a 
very narrow angle to centre on, but perhaps I just don't know what I'm 
talking about. There's a link on the site for checking out your antenna.

You might also try on the video4linux list. [email protected]

Nice to see that there is a TV card specifically for linux.

I'm only using analog TV through a Hauppauge Win TV EXpress card. I've had 
some problems setting it up on various distros, but all in all it works ok.

Hope you get yours fixed for the digital stuff.

Nigel.
