hi list,

i have been trying to get mplayer working with my Hauppauge WinTV card without success, although it works fine with xawtv and fxtv. 
the command i think should be right is as follows (but i've tried almost any other combination):

mplayer -tv on:driver=bsdbt848:norm=paln:chanlist=europe-west:input=1

sound works, but the picture hangs and looks odd (some green and blue mixed up stuff), still i'm able to recognize the mtv logo f.e.
i tried all kind of video output possibilties, including aa and xv. xv works great with other media on mplayer, so i don't think the problem lies there, but i might be wrong. perhaps some trouble with screen resolutions?

i would really appreciate help on this one. google didn't help much either.
have a nice weekend.
