Yes. I had rebooted. No, not a dumb question. That's just the kind of
mistake that I might make.
The kernel was definitely loading the 0.8.0 ivtv kernel module (from
"dmesg | grep ivtv"). I guess my last update wasn't as clean as I had
hoped. The loaded kernel was 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5.i686. The ivtv kernel
module was version 0.8.0 for that kernel. The lirc kernel module was
for 2239. I ma not sure why that worked.
yum was telling me that I did have the 2239 kernel, but it was not in my
So I updated the kernel, and then I updated all my drivers to the new
kernel version (lirc, ivtv, nvidia). In my one experiment, the audio
from the line in on the PVR-150 did not exhibit the tinny audio
problem. The ivtv version is now 0.8.2.
Thanks for the help.
