Still having problems with my tv tuner -- need help



Hi;

tvtime gives me a great picture but no sound.

mplayer gives me a terrible picture and no sound.

(terrible = inverted picture with green background; just black and
magenta for colours; and vertical lines running through it.)

Is there a way to find out which video codecs etc. tvtime is using so I
can duplicate them in mplayer.  tvtime -v doesn't tell me (I think) nor
is mplayer -v helpful.

I have tried the sound with PulseAudio installed and removed.  No
difference.

Here is what I have today

The mplayer command line above comes from a couple of googled suggested
command lines for use with my video card.  I can't get any to work.  The
above script is the result of intense manual reading etc. and trial and
