    Error getting codec params using old IVTV ioctl

    I got a Hauppauge WinTV PVR-350 after looking at the mythTv documentation, and loaded MythTV; immediately, I was able to watch TV on it, but I had to fool around a while to get sound because I'm using a USB device instead of the motherboard sound card. Now I always get a failure to initialize video when I go to view TV.
    Looking at /var/log/mythtv/mythtvbackend.log, I find I get this:

    2007-10-30 20:00:00.322 TVRec(1): Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
    2007-10-30 20:00:00.329 TVRec(1): HW Tuner: 1->1
    2007-10-30 20:00:00.537 MPEGRec(/dev/video0) Error: Error getting codec params using old IVTV ioctl
    eno: Bad address (14)
    2007-10-30 20:00:21.357 TVRec(1): Changing from WatchingLiveTV to None

    I have tried rescanning for channels with US-bcast, US-cable, and US-cable-hrc, rebooting with 30 seconds of power off etc, and I'm not getting any headway there; does this look familiar to anybody? What am I doing wrong? It's maddening to be so close and have nothing (again). My sound works beautifully now, but no video after I had it to start with is very frustrating.

    I got the same error on my PVR-500 on both tuners. I'm in Europe, using PAL.
