ATI TV Wonder Card on TVtime

I have have a TV Wonder card from ATI installed on my computer, and I really like it. I downloaded xawtv and got it going, but there are appears to be some strange things..

First off the channels are messed up. Like for instance Channel 10 CBS will only come in on channel 11 using xawtv, which is kind of weird.. Not a problem, but I wanted to try TVtime, which sounded and looked better.

I installed TVtime, and I went to run it, here is what came up:

stevex@maestro:~# tvtime
Running tvtime 0.9.12.
Reading configuration from /usr/local/etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
Reading configuration from /root/.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:
*** If unsure, please check with your distribution to see if your
*** X driver supports hardware overlay surfaces.

What do i need to do to get my ATI card working? I trying to find ATI drivers, but all I found was stuff for ATI video cards..

Can the TV wonder card be used in TVtime?

Sorry for my ignorance, friend, but this is a tv capture card or a video card with tv-out?
Tvtime will work on any card, provided the driver gives it the needed functionality. I guess this is what the error message is talking about, some missing feature.
I emailed the guy from tvtime once, sometime ago, and he was very kind and helpful. You can try to ask him this. Did you check the tvtime website for this error, already?
