Problems with tvtime and TV@nywhere Master


I am a new Linux user and am running Fedora 3. I've been pretty happy with the ease of setting up my sound and video cards. I reached a snag with my tv card however. I can't get TVTime to work correctly. I haven't tried other tv software yet, but that may be a path that I should try. Tv Time looks like a really cool tv tuner program so I'd be happy to stick with it. The tuner card is a MSI TV@anywhere Master card. Here is the output from lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8753 [P4X266 AGP] (rev 01)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP]
00:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 07)
00:09.1 Input device controller: Creative Labs SB Live! MIDI/Game Port (rev 07)
00:0b.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Winfast TV2000 XP (rev 05)
00:0b.1 Multimedia controller: Conexant: Unknown device 8801 (rev 05)
00:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
00:10.0 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 80)
00:10.1 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 80)
00:10.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 80)
00:10.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 82)
00:11.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8235 ISA Bridge
00:11.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)

In tvtime the channels appear to be off a little bit. I've tried tuning them but have had no luck. I went on the tvtime page and saw some info about forcing the card to recognize NTSC signals (instead of PAL). I tried to follow the info in the tvtime FAQ (unable to link due to forum rules), but I think it may not have worked because my card is using the cx88xx or cx8800 drivers (and not the bttv ones). I'm not really sure. Any links/help would be appreciated.

The drivers included with the 2.6 kernel don't seem to work properly with the cx88xx chipsets. I posted a link here to the driver that worked for me.

Jsutton,
I finally had some time to try what you suggested. I downloaded the cx drivers from the link you gave and also the kernel source. I then tried what you suggested. The following is what i get when I try to follow the build instructions on the cx drivers website:
[root@carole linux]# uname -a
Linux carole.gspot.com 2.6.10-1.770_FC3 #1 Thu Feb 24 14:00:06 EST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@carole linux]# make KDIR=/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3/build/
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3/build/ SUBDIRS=/home/asteele/Desktop/cx88-0.0.4 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3/build'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.770_FC3/build'
make: *** [default] Error 2


Now this is after I installed the source rpm (as described on the Fedora website). I believe the KDIR is set to the right location and has the right files. It appears this is a function version problem though. Any ideas?

How can I tell what version of cx dirvers were included in the Fedora packaging?

I remember having a problem similar to this. I'll post back when I remember what the solution was.
