It was the younger problem report (kern/73669).
So you can see a program in BW, which was not there before?
That could mean, that you have a problem with hitting the right frequencies...
Somehow there are groups of frequencies or maybe frequency names (I do not
At least you could try "multimedia/xawtv", which allows to set PAL/NTSC and
region quite easy.

My kernel says similar things about his Pinnacle, which means, that there is
hope, I think.
But my kernel does not detect a MSP3440, which seems to be a little sound card
on the TV card (I have to put the mono audio signal on the CD-audio-connector)?

Hmm... I did not change any sysctls; it suddenly just worked after the patch...
Maybe you should not only remove the kernel options about bktr but also any
sysctl settings about bktr?
And then try xawtv (the option -hwscan might be interesting) :-)
Do you Yahoo!?
