IVTV and Video4Linux problems


I'm running Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10 with kde-4.1.96 kernal-2.6.27-9

at first look it's good, but when I run KMPlayer, Tvtime I have no picture or invalid argument. The tuner has three (3)types of inputs, tuner, S-Video and Composite

Q: Is there something else I need to do?
Q: With KMPlayer see the card, how can I switch inputs?

IVTV
Code:

I tried dvb-utils installed it and got this result

So that solved the changing TV tuner switching input problem on KMPlayer kinda-sorta, still I have no Video.
but trillobyte Post on recording VHS tapes works just fine it recorded with no problems thanks to trillobyte

How to convert VHS tapes to mpeg2 using a PVR-150 card.

Set your card to channel 3. On a terminal, type the command: ivtv-tune --channel=3

Put your tape in the VCR and press play.

To capture some video, on a terminal type the command:
cat /dev/vide0 > my.mpg
press ctrl-c to stop.

Open another terminal and type the command:
mplayer my.mpg
This will check the status of the video while it's being captured. This is how I know when the tape has ended and so forth.

Best regards"
I if I use zapping tv viewer I was able to view video from /dev/video0, but with two problems (1) seven green horizonal bars across the whole screen and (2) no sound
