Can you try kbtv2 (http://freebsd.ricin.com/kbtv2)? It likely gives the same
result, because this tuner is unknown to me but kbtv2 is what you should test
against (kbtv1 is not developed anymore). Try MK3 tuner.
Please note that for the 1.95 (RC2) release I forgot to 'make makesum' in the
ports' directories, so you'll have to do that yourself, sorry.
