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?
