Not at all.

Use one of the 0.2.0 releases or (only if using FC) Axel's

White noise should be white noise, regardless of channel. ;)

Yours is not one of the new tuners. Both of the new tuners are NTSC.
Yours is type 38--which has been available for quite some time.
Therefore, you do *not* need the tuner patches. If you have already
compiled them, they won't hurt, but don't go off on a tangent because of
the tuner patches, because they are not your problem.

If using ivtv-0.2.0-rc, the above is all you need. The options below
will probably cause problems.

Do not preload modules manually. The ivtv driver will take care of
loading all dependent modules for you. Just make sure you load ivtv
with modprobe and *not* with insmod.

You can keep this, too.
Note that if you take out the options and add below I specified, your
system should almost work, but you'll probably need one other option.
Some--generally French SECAM users--may need to specify
options ivtv tda9887=0
PAL users, may need to specify
options ivtv tda9887=1
Since yours is a PAL/SECAM multiformat tuner, you may need one of these
