Thanks for catching that, Prash. Mike, sorry I missed that earlier (too
busy with my IR transmitter debugging....).

Only if using a version of ivtv less than ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck108l and if
not using Axel's patched ivtv-0.1.10pre2-ck108k (which you are using).
Therefore, do *not* put any module options in the modprobe.conf--your
tuner will be (and is being) autodetected.
So, why doesn't it work if it's being autodetected? Well, Mike, you're
the proud owner of a PVR-350 with a tuner type that Hauppauge just
started using (the LG NTSC (TAPE series) tuner). Before Hauppauge began
using them, there was no support for the tuner in Linux. Therefore,
you'll have to ensure you're using a patched version of the kernel's
tuner module. Today, Axel released an RPM of the latest video4linux
snapshot that has support for the tuner (see
Unfortunately, there's a possibility that the video4linux snapshots Axel
built are using an incorrect tuner definition (the video4linux snapshot
hasn't been updated). I sent a couple of e-mails to Axel to try to find
out, but he hasn't seen them (or they got filtered out as spam :). So,
I recommend installing the video4linux snapshot as described in Axel's
message above. If you still get snow, it's got the wrong definition,
and between this message the message you post after trying with your
results ;), Axel and I will both know.
Thanks and good luck,
