Installation Woes with 5500 (ATSC-OTA)

I've been using mthtv for about 2 years now (was running 0.15), but decided to upgrade to HD recently..anyways..now I'm running:

mythtv 0.20, FC-6 (following Jarods Howto), its work great with the pvr-350.
but so far I have been unable to get the 5500 card to work.

I'm trying to use my 5500 to tune to OTA -ATSC channels

Using dvbscan, I see it is finding some HD channels, as I am getting a channels file with the following:


The MythTV scan does not appear to find anything, during the setup I installed the card as DVB DTV capture card (v3.x)

Xine Testing:

Typing: xine dvb://
Results in:
It complains about the dvb:// mrl saying there is no plugin support for it.
Under message it shows: found input plugin for dvb

Typing: xine -C 4.1 dvb://
just spits out the help info (as if it doesnt like the -C arg)

(I did a yum install of both xine and xine-hd)
note: I do not see an option for HD skin..

I have since grabbed the source on the CD included with the card, and compiled/installed..not difference.

xine -version shows:
a free video player v0.99.4.

lsmod |grep dvb ..shows..

Any tips on what I have messed up?

I have what appears to be an identical issue. Is there anyone with suggestions on this issue?

I purchased two 5500's. When I scan OTA for HD stations, it picks up tons of them (Los Angeles), However, Xine gives me the same complaint. Any attempt I've made to open the dvb devices has met failure. MythTV doesn't even recognize their existence even when I can cd to them.

I'm not sure if my versions are identical to yours. But I am getting almost identical output messages.
