Yes, I really don't mind helping (that's why I'm a member of this list ;)

Mine is without a fm-radio and teletext.  So I can't help you with
those two features atleast.

You have'nt mentioned the bttv options you are using.  Are you just
using the default settings which were auto-detected by RH 7.0?  If
yes, you need to edit your /etc/modules.conf file.  Here is the
relevant portion from mine:

------- start ----------
options bttv card=37
alias char-major-81 bttv
options tuner type=5 
options lirc_gpio gpio_mask=0x1f00 gpio_lock_mask=0x8000 gpio_xor_mask=0 soft_gap=400 sample_rate=12
alias char-major-61 lirc_gpio
------- end -----------

You should then restart your machine and run xawtv.  Do set the TV NORM
and video source correctly.
