If you're running in clone mode, you need to tell X that you want overlay on
the TV screen. Add the following to the ATI device section of your
XF86Config (or xorg.conf):
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OverlayOnCRTC2" "true"
That should do the trick.

I had the same problem. It had nothing to do with ivtv or pvr 250.
Do you have ATI video card and you have installed ati driver with
One way to go around is that you start x while tv is not connected
and then connect TV.
Better way is to use fglrxconfig to do single monitor conficfile for
TV. Enable TV, single monitor, and lovers refresh rates.
Thanks to the guys who helped me with the same problem 8).
