This is working OK. I have also experimented more with tvtime and both
versions work, but I have to do little more fine tuning and then I
have better picture. So I will probably have to manually find exact
stations frequencies and enter them in mythtv. But I first have to
figure how and where to enter them.

saa7134-alsa is loaded automatically, but I am unable to get any sound
from mplayer or tvtime. I see on google, that I am not the only one.
I have also noticed that about 8-10% of the frames are lost.
