Installing the IVTV driver for the Hauppauge 250 and 350

First, go get the latest IVTV driver. At the time of this writing, it is 0.4.0 - get it here. My last MythTV install used version 0.2.0, which may have been the cause of a lot of my problems -- so make sure you're using the current stable version that's available.

Thanks to Rachel's Knowledge Base Blog for the great advice on how to compile and install IVTV. Make sure to read the "Gotcha" at the bottom.

The one change I made was, I have the following in my /etc/modutils/ivtv file:

# /etc/modutils/ivtv

alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
options ivtv ivtv-debug=0 mpg_buffers=90
options saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=0 options tuner type=2
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1 debug=0
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 tuner saa7127
add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_i2c ivtv-fb
