I use Xawtv myself. But check your kernel configuration and make sure all the modules are loaded, one for audio, one for video, and one for the mixer. You also need the I2C core and I2C bitbanging enabled.

run lsmod to see if they were loaded at boot, if not you will have to run modprobe for them.
