I will check it out. I will try to build the driver from the tar
ball and see if I have better success.
I was wanting to use VLC or VLS to convert my VHS collection to
MPEGs and then put them on DVDs or VCDs. I have an ATI Radeon

I have a PVR 250 card working with FC3 that I use with MythTV, following

above site, or others relating to MythTV.

initial installation; but other than that is seems to work ok.
I am at work right now, so I can't send you what the dmesg output looks
like; perhaps later.
