Have you tried xawtv?  I don't have a tv card, but needed a tv app to work 
with video capture.  At first I had the same symptoms as you describe, until 
someone told me that the configuration file may not have been written to 
my /home directory.  Every change I tried to make from the menus was dropped, 
nothing changed.  As advised, I created a .xawtv file in my home directory 
with the following contents:

[global]
ratio = 4:3
freqtab = europe-west
pixsize = 80 x 24
pixcols = 8
jpeg-quality = 75
keypad-ntsc = off
keypad-partial = off
osd = yes
osd-position = 30 , 20
use-wm-fullscreen = no

[defaults]
input = S-Video
norm = pal
capture = over

If you can't get tvtime working you might try this.
