Re: 10.1 kdetv doesn't remember channel tuning SOLVED

Hi Folks,

I found the problem.  The channel wizard scanned the
tuner as Video4Linux2, but when kdetv started up it
selected Video4Linux.  I just changed the default to
Video4Linux2 and the problem went away.  Note that I
probably messed up the default in the first place.

Everything else seems solid now.
