No, I don't want the bounty.  This is an excerpt from a slackware
installation guide at:

.....
If you just get a black/blank screen, you're /dev/video16 probably
wasn't created correctly.  This has happened to me almost everytime i've
installed ivtv.  Try this:

$ su
# rm /dev/video16
# mknod /dev/video16 c 81 16
# chmod 777 /dev/video16
# exit
$ dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video16 bs=64k
.....


Good luck,
Don
