I just got myself a dvb-t tv card, the WinFast DTV1000 T because after searching the web I found that this card should work "out of the box"...

Obviously I was VERY wrong it seems.

I have Ubuntu 7.04, I installed the card, I have followed a few guides and can't seem to get it to work.  I don't even know if the card is being recognised.

I have recorded what I see when I try to scan for channels using mythtv.

Here is a link:

When I connect the antenna to a normal tv it works...

here is some extra information:

nami@nami-desktop:~$ grep -i dvb /var/log/messages

Appreciate any help
