I have a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 150. I recently upgraded from 0.19 to 0.20 using the debs from sid. Unfortunately, with the new version, recordings and live TV are in black and white about 66% of the time.

That is, it seems that each time a different channel is chosen, there is about a 66% chance there will be no colour. Reverting back to version 0.19 results in a colour picture 100% of the time.

Try compiling yourself. Works fine here 100% of the time.

I have found a similar problem with 0.20, only it seems to me to occur partially due to the input signal strength. On 1 channel I always get a good color picture, but on others its pot luck. When I do get a colour signal, the image jumps around the screen in an unpleasant fashion. Sometimes the PVR just shows a blank screen !!!

Output is fine on my other card (an el cheapo BT878 card). I have not tried with v0.19.

Please retest with a build using the very latest 0.20-fixes, there are some frequency tables fixes that just went in (changeset [13219]) which sound like they could be relevant here.

I checked out and build the 0.20-fixes branch from svn on 2007/04/15. Pleased to report that I haven't had any B&W problems in the week and a half since. :)

Thanks for all your hard work!
