[mythtv] Can't get CVS build to work anymore with PVR350

I've had the same issue.  but without ivtv-fb loaded, I can play back files
using the PVR-350 tv-out using dd just fine.  AS soon as ivtv-fb loads and I
try the dd command again, I get the symptoms described by Chris below.  The
only mythtv application running is the backend.  When I get back in front of
my system I'll try loading ivtv-fb before mythbackend, or remove mythbackend
from my startup scripts to see what happens with no myth applications in
memory at all.

Forgive the post here, I did not see Christopher Delis' e-mail so I could
work with him directly to find a common issue.

Current cvs should work fine with 0.1.9 and also with Chris's latest
drivers. In Chris's driver bundle there is a patch for Mythtv which improves
the performance of the OSD and it "should" work with both 0.1.9 and the latest
drivers as well. This patch is just a performance improvement though and is
not required for myth to work.
