I'm using the internal tuner of the PVR350 SECAM version :)

Only one; the PVR-350 set up on the aerial antenna tuner

The msg was posted in end 2003 (after 06/2003) but right now, I can't remember.
A guy was telling that Isaac adviced him to change channel names. This solution worked for a while and then he was stuck again. (ps right now my brain is too "drunk", if you need the specific msg, I'll try to find it again tmorrow, but no technical info were in it)

Yep, deleted the old one, restoring, changing names, etc... I can't see a thing that i did not try with the database.

I'm using ivtv ck100g with a PVR-350 SECAM version model 992 and yep, I am on the ivtv list ;)
I'm running kernel 2.6.7-gentoo-r11

If more info are needed, I will be happy to help, but on my side, I'm stuck there, and really do not see why I'm stuck on this specific channel :(
Thanks for helping me :)
