Comment 3 Lubomir Bulej 2005-07-06 17:52:48 UTC
The video capture card is AVerMedia TVCapture 98 [card=13, tuner=5], 
PCI subsystem ID is 1461:0004. There have been changes in the bttv driver
between the two kernel versions, but I'm not sure whether the breakage lies with
tvtime or with the kernel.

Comment 4 Lubomir Bulej 2005-07-06 18:11:49 UTC
The platform is Pentium 4 @ 3 GHz (family 15, model 3, stepping 4) plugged in
ASUS P5P800 with BIOS version 1010.002, with Hyper Threading enabled.

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-11 11:00:27 UTC
Also happens with the stock 2.6.12-1.1421_FC5 kernel as provided in Fedora Core
Development repository. It's the first kernel where tvtime stops working (No

Comment 6 John Ellson 2005-07-11 12:07:36 UTC
This might be the same bug as 146241.    Channel tuning is broken in kernel 1411
and later.  When you power up, the tuner stats on a channel with no signal and
you  are unable to change to another channel.

Comment 7 John Ellson 2005-07-11 12:09:34 UTC
Correction  to #6.  This might be the same bug as 162451 (not 146241)
