Aaron,

Where did you get the card and tuner options?  According to the
cardlist(s), card=64 is a ATI TV-Wonder VE and tuner=28 is a LG
PAL_BG+FM (TPI8PSB01D).  I don't think these are correct for the WinTv
Go.  Remove those lines from modprobe.conf and delete the duplicate
alias char-major-81 line.

IIRC the WinTV card I have at home is the same as yours and required no
special options in modprobe.conf.  Currently, it's not installed so I
cannot check it (lspci).

As to the XDMCP issues:  It's possible that tvtime will not run
remotely, if that is your intent.  xawtv has (or had) a remote option,
but at the time I tried it only video was redirected sound stayed at the
host executing xawtv.  Not very useful for remote TV watching.
