I'm having a kernel related issue (I think) with the BT878 card I have
in my gentoo box.

Here are pastebin results of varius infomation, I hope I give all the
necessary info. If I am missing something or you need more, please let
me know.

dmesg -> http://rafb.net/p/MVIiSg62.html
xorg.conf -> http://rafb.net/p/dXz4Ry49.html
Xorg.0.log -> http://rafb.net/p/LbPBZT56.html
config -> http://rafb.net/p/Dm5LDM88.html

xawtv gives me a window and when I right click, I can choose what
format and region and all that jazz, but I get no picture. I do get a
green overlay w/ some static when it doesn't cause my X Session to
freeze. Below is the console output of two apps I am trying to use to
access the TV Card.

tvtime produces the following error:

    xaero@Leviathan ~ $ tvtime
    Running tvtime 1.0.2.
    Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
    Reading configuration from /home/xaero/.tvtime/tvtime.xml
    xvoutput: No XVIDEO port found which supports YUY2 images.

    *** tvtime requires hardware YUY2 overlay support from your video card
    *** driver.  If you are using an older NVIDIA card (TNT2), then
    *** this capability is only available with their binary drivers.
    *** For some ATI cards, this feature may be found in the experimental
    *** GATOS drivers: http://gatos.souceforge.net/
    *** If unsure, please check with your distribution to see if your
    *** X driver supports hardware overlay surfaces.

    xaero@Leviathan ~ $

tvtime-scanner now that made my heart jump ... cause it scanned and
stored all my basic cable channels. But I still can't get a video
signal. So I am obviously missing something.


So hopefully someone can help me

I thought I did, I reposted w/ newer links and the GATOS project doesn't
apply to me because my card isn't supported ... was there something I
missed?

You didn't answer Robert's question.

And you are using the fglrx driver; you'll have to ask ATI whether if
supports video overlays and how to configure it.

I assume you did read the message tvtime spit out and looked into it?
