Well, I got things to work with bttv, but I had a general high load and
it seemed more like software issues. Using xawtv and all that worked
fine, so I'm guessing it might be the pvr-250. I'm tempted to yank it
and put it into a windows system and see how well it works there.
The only other thing I can think of is that i've switched to using the
v4l2 stuff, which I'm not sure could cause any problems with the ivtv
drivers. I'm thinking of a full reinstall of fedora and see what happens...

yeah, i'm using them. I'm not sure about the versions, however. Did
you enable at-bleeding?
