    Unable to watch live TV, please help!

    When i try to watch Live TV the screen goes blank shows the word Please... and then comes back to the frontend without seeing any video.

    When i checked the mythbackend.log I have three errors but the most blatent one i can seem to figuire out is Sample Rate: Attempted to add a rate 32000Hz, which is not in the list of allowed rates.

    I have a Hauppage WinTV PVR-150 capture card

    below is a link to my logs, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance!

    The PVR-150 is analog-only.
    What are you connecting it to?

    Re: Unable to watch live TV, please help!

    i finally got it working with a composite input, for some reason when i was using the tuner i could hear the sound but i could not see the picture. it was just scrabbled fuzz.

    I know need to configure the ir blaster to change the channels on my vernon cable box, any suggestions?
