xawtv questions


A couple of days ago I've "recovered" a Jetway eeprom-less(?) tv-card
based on a Conexant cipset; after playing with sysctl I've convinced it
to work as a Zoltrix card and Philips PALI tuner (also works as PAL,
btw - what's the difference ?). I haven't touched the radio part yet.
This is what I get without setting sysctl:

bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xe2000000-0xe2000fff irq 17 at device 13.0 on pci0
bktr0: Reserved 0x1000 bytes for rid 0x10 type 3 at 0xe2000000
brooktree0: PCI bus latency is 32.
bktr0: buffer size 3555328, addr 0x3a000000
bktr0: GPIO is 0x003fffff
bktr0: Card has no configuration EEPROM. Cannot determine card make.
bktr0: card signature:  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  00  01  00  00  00

bktr0: MT2032: Companycode=2c2c Part=2c Revision=2c
bktr0: MT2032 not found or unknown type
bktr0: Pinnacle/Miro TV, Temic NTSC tuner.
pci0: <multimedia> at device 13.1 (no driver attached)

while pciconf (after sysctl ) ;
bktr0_(_at_)_pci0:13:0:        class=0x040000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x036e109e rev=0x11 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Conexant (Was: Brooktree Corp)'
    device   = 'Bt878/Fusion 878A Mediastream Controller'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = video
none0_(_at_)_pci0:13:1:        class=0x048000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x0878109e rev=0x11 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Conexant (Was: Brooktree Corp)'
    device   = 'Bt878/Fusion878A Video Capture (Audio Section)'
    class    = multimedia

There's one thing that doesn't work - auto-scanning the channels but I
set them by hand in motv (Options -> Add Channel .. and gone though all
the channels listed in the drop-down) - so it's OK.

There are two minor but annoying thing that bothers me: 

- on start xawtv / motv changes the channel to the first one listed in
~/.xawtv;  and it's a xawtv problem, since I can hear the "old" channel
for a second or so on start.

- I have to select select each time the sound source (internal/external
since tuner doesn't seem to provide anything); I haven't found a way to
set the sound source in xawtv docs.

Any hint for avoiding this ?
