Have you tried xawtv? I don't have a tv card, but needed a tv app to work
with video capture. At first I had the same symptoms as you describe, until
someone told me that the configuration file may not have been written to
my /home directory. Every change I tried to make from the menus was dropped,
nothing changed. As advised, I created a .xawtv file in my home directory
with the following contents:
ratio = 4:3
freqtab = europe-west
pixsize = 80 x 24
pixcols = 8
jpeg-quality = 75
keypad-ntsc = off
keypad-partial = off
osd = yes
osd-position = 30 , 20
use-wm-fullscreen = no
input = S-Video
norm = pal
capture = over
If you can't get tvtime working you might try this.
