Default xawtv problem

System is Via KT266, AMD 1800+, NV GeForce3 Ti2000, Iomega Buz capture card (saa7111, saa7185, zr36067), RH7.2, 2.4.18 custom kernel, NV-2960 drivers. lsmod shows all required modules loaded.

Trying to use xawtv, which uses video4linux and Xvideo. Input source is DirecTV settop thru S-Video. Results are:

-With Xvideo, the TV image is green and purple - it's "there", but totally unuseable.

-If I use the xawtv -noxv option, which doesn't go thru xvideo, the TV image and colors are right, but it looks like half the scan lines are missing.

Anybody have any experience with this? I *think* NVidia drivers support Xvideo, but am I wrong?

As an aside, I have the impression that NVidia drivers do *not* support DRI but they *do* support DGA, do I have that right? Are there any other X-Windows modules or extensions that may be related to the above?

Ideas appreciated, Randy
