[mythtv-users] FC6, pvr-250 and IVTV - cannot capture

I have just got myself a new sempron 64 3000 and motherboard, and started to rebuild my myth server. I have migrated from FC4, 32bit to FC6 64bit. My Hauppauge DVB card is working perfectly, but my Hauppauge pvr-250 will not capture. To rule things out, I have removed the DVB card.
I installed using Jarod's guide, as always, and installed the ivtv drivers. "modprobe ivtv" works with no errors in dmesg, and I can use the IR from the pvr-250. But when I try to "cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test_capture.mpg" it just sits there, with the capture file staying at 0 bytes in size. I have tried removing the ivtv drivers/firmware from atrpms, and compiling from the ivtv source, using both 0.10.1 and 0.8.2, both with the same results. I have also tried viewing video through mythtv, but it fails and returns to the menu, with a timeout error in the logs.
Has anyone else had this problem?? I am wondering if it is a kernel/64-bit issue, and if I should try 32-bit FC6 or even FC5.
