OK.  My recent Myth problems were on camille, which thankfully is now
working.  Originally, I was trying to move my Myth installation to
carter, which is a dedicated linux box.  I wanted to do this so that I
could dual boot into Windows XP on camille more often.  I've been
applying all the advice I've been getting to carter's installation and
everything works except for Watch TV.  Carter's TV card is Hauppage
HVR-1950 (pvrusb2).  I can get video with it (I have the /eev/vieo0
device node and I can get a file by mplayer /dev/video0).  I'm thinking
the card type in Capture Cards in mythtv-setup might be the problem.
Here is the output from mythbackend:

I'm using the recommended IVTV MPEG-2 Encoder card type.  What am I
doing wrong here?
