PCTV problem

I've recently purchased a Pinnacle PCTV Pro PCI card.
In accordance with the FreeBSD handbook this card is
supported by the bktr(4) driver. But all my attempts
to use it have been unsuccessful: I've always got
something like colorized snow on the top part of the
program's window.

I would like to know if there is a way to fix my problem.

My configuration is:

FreeBSD v.6.0 RELEASE (amd64)
nVidia nForce4-based motherborad
3dfx VooDoo4 4500 PCI video card

Kernel config:

options		BKTR_USE_PLL
device		smbus
device		iicbus
device		iicbb
device		ic
device		iic
device		iicsmb
device		smb
device		bktr

dmesg info:

bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xe8001000-0xe8001fff irq 19 at device 7.0 on pci1

bktr0: MT2032 not found or unknown type
bktr0: Detected a MSP3400 at -@0 at 0x80
bktr0: Pinnacle/Miro TV, msp3400c stereo.

I've tried to use this configuration with mplayer
and xawtv (frequency table: 'russia', TV norm: SECAM/SECAMD).
Fxtv always crashes my system with page fault errors.
