[mythtv] PVR 250 issues...

The hack worked, and now I show a boatload of available inputs. I chose Tuner,
as usual, and went about starting up the backend, which seemed to start fine,
then the frontend. But when I get to the Codec chooser in Setup>Recording, I'm
not sure what to choose. I was under the impression that the PVR 250 would
enable MPEG2 to be used. When I attempt to use one of the other codecs (RTJPEG,
MPEG4, Hardware MJPEG) I get various errors, all from ivtv. Is this a driver
issue? Or should I be setting up recording differently?
