PVR150 working!!!!

I got my pvr150 working.. YIIPEE!!!!
i think i can say it took me like roughly about 1hour to install. It wasn’t really that hard.. once u follow the directions from . Howto:Ubuntu and Installing MythTV on Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy) with a Hauppauge PVR-150/250/350/500 .

at first when i recorded a short piece by using:
cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test.mpg
all i got was static… then while reading further to change the channel:
ivtv-tune -c # -d /dev/video0 (Where “#” is replaced by the channel that you want to tune to)
VOILA!!!! I’m watching TV.

Since i’m using a AMD64 i have to build Mythtv from source.
