tvtime problems, XVIDEO, yuy2


I'm not quite sure if this is a software problem, I think it is.

I can't get tvtime working, when I run it the window appears and then disappears.

output of 'tvtime -v'
Code:
$ tvtime -v
Running tvtime 1.0.2.
Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
Reading configuration from /home/magnus/.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.
As you can see I need XVIDEO or YUY2 or something, I don't know what any of them are.
I have a ATI grafics card(Radeon 9600), and a MSI tunver card.

The funny thing is that I have used tvtime on the same computer, with the same TV-tuner card and same version of Ubuntu. But after a reinstall I did some time ago, it didn't work.

I'm stabbing in the dark here, but is it possible you are using a different driver this time? Maybe a free driver versus a proprietary one?
