You have set them to the MPEG2 now, right?  The patch Isaac applied means
ytou need to redefine the  hardware mpeg2 profiles.  Works for me.

I dunno what to say about the unknown ioctl, but have you tried disabling
the volume setting as I mentioned?  That should prevent that error, and
allow you to record.  please let me know if it does.  As I said, this
seems most likely to be an issue with your ivtv drivers, since ioctl
0x4008561c is valid (it is VIDIOC_S_CTRL).  You could try loadind ivtv
with debug=2.  I think that will give you more debug information, and
then paste the relevant sections of dmesg.

As for your "Not enough Buffers" message, has this been ongoing, or
recent?  I get that message whenever both cards stop recording
simultaneously (one is bttv, the other is PVR250), but I have never seen
it cause a problem for me.  I see you already have the number of buffers
maximized.  This didn't help my case either.
