Question no overlay support

alright guys, I dont know if i came to the right spot but here it goes. Everytime I startup xawtv or mythTV I get nothing but a blank(black) screen. So I ran xawtv from the terminal and I noticed I got this message when it started:

/dev/video0 [v4l2]: no overlay support

What extactly is this? Do I need this? I can do this command and it records just fine:

cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test_capture.mpg

The Capture with sound looks just fine. This thing has been driving me up the wall. Can anybody help me? Thanks

Try running

xawtv -noxv

or is it simply -xv.... I forget.

Thank you for your time,
