I get a partial image and no sound! but the card appears to be working,
I am hunting furiously for something else, to get it to work properly.
What is really freaky is if I run lsmod there is no driver loaded. But
if I modprobe the module the Card starts to work but as I said I only
get a partial picture thats very fuzzy might I add. If I lsmod again the
card is sortof working and there is still no driver listed for it. 
I don't have the PC with me so I can't post my outputs, but I think I
will manage. There isn't a lot of support on TV cards so we must
struggle.
