I ran into this problem last week. It appears that this compile problem is
due to interface changes in the i2c subsystem between the version that the
current pcHDTV drivers were written for and version 2.8.4 which is used by
the 2.4.22-1.2174.nptl_37.rhfc1.at kernel. See
http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/ for more info.
I tried editing bttv-if.c so that it looked like the bttv-if.c included
with the ATRpms kernel. My changes also matched the patches at the link
above. At that point the drivers compiled fine, but when I installed them
and tried to run dtvsignal or getatsc, the programs would segfault and
hang. I don't know if the problem was with my changes or if there was some
other problem with the combination of those drivers and that kernel.
I ended up just using Fedora'a 2.4.22-1.2174.nptl kernel. The drivers
compiled and have been working fine.
