This is true due to channel scanning being removed from MythTV in .22+,
however Schedules Direct is not a requirement, any data source will work.
XML grabbers/EIT Data/ect ect. Channel scanning is possible with the IVTV
utilities outside of MythTV and can be used to generate the data source.

I cannot talk to this specfic problem without more information, but I don't
believe this to be a problem with the IVTV drivers.

Again, without any logs or information, this is an unknown, but this is not
a known bug as far as I know about. I have all nvidia hardware with my
systems and again the HVR-1600 works fine with the proprietary drivers.
Last I find viewing the MPEG2 Stream generated by the

This will depend on the TV/Monitor you hook your MythTV system up to for
playback. A setting such as display resolution is specific to the user and
tends to require a little "trail and error" so to speak.
