I have a bt878 card which works with xawtv (no sound, but picture OK), with settings as shown below.

[RFU-90E 3CH]
The following command line with mplayer only gives me a blue screen and no audio.
What to do?

$ mplayer -tv on:device=/dev/video1:driver=v4l:width=640:height=480:input=1:chanel=K02:norm=PAL:chanlist=france
