MythTV -- Scan gets stuck on channel 22, "no lock"; what to do?


I know that my tuner is working as i can watch tv in xawtv.
The hardware I'm working with:
P4 2.8GHZ
512MB Ram
Hauppauge 44981

I have added the card as both V4L and MPEG4 (I'm unsure which I'm supposed to use).

I setup the source to have "no grabber", and then set up input, when I do this, for V4L, there is no "Scan for Channels" option, when i set up input for MPEG4, there is that option, but when I click it i get an error, "Failed to open the card", but I can change the input on that page to the V4L input, i hit scan for channels, it scans and adds channels up to channel 22, where I get "No Lock"; it doesn't seem to do anything else from there.

--So, how should I be using this card, and how can I know when its working with mythtv?>

Thanks,

As it turns out the solution (as described on Ubuntu forums) was to set the device up as mpeg2 device, and scan, when it got stuck just go back in the menu and re-scan, i did this like 5-6 times until all the channels finally loaded, then went back and changed the device back to V4L.

--Hope this helps others out that may have this issue.
--Smoker, the link is useful, but it was just a tutorial for setting up MythTv, it does not provide any insight into the issue I was having which was not addressed by a general tutorial. I actually do look at tutorial and search for solutions before I post.

Thanks anyway,
MJ
