Hans Verkuil has been doing a significant amount of work on VBI/VPS 
support for the PVR-x50 cards using Chris Kennedy's patch series for 
ivtv-0.1.10pre2.  I recommend checking out ck100b ( 
http://kmos.org/~ckennedy/ivtv/ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck100b.diff ) and 
subscribing to the IvyTV ML's ( 
http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=73219 ) before getting too 
involved.  You'll probably still have to do some work on Myth, but might 
find that the PVR-x50 drivers are ready to go.

IIRC, Myth doesn't currently provide support for VBI/CC with the 
PVR-x50's, yet, since the stable version of ivtv (0.1.9) doesn't support 
VBI.  Therefore, to get the patch accepted into Myth, you'll have to at 
least consider drivers that don't support VBI and have a plan for 
ensuring that the new code doesn't interfere with users of the stable 
driver (or cause a flurry of "why doesn't it work for me" questions on 
the list).
