Michael, All :

 Thanks for the help. My PVR-250 was not tuner-type of 2 or 39 (as I see
most are). It was type 8. I changed the ivtv module 'tuner' parameter, and
changed my frequency table to 'us-cable-hrc' and I was all set. Now time to
fiddle with improving picture and audio quality...

Yes, it's correct.  The static means that the tuner is not tuned to any 
particular channel.  You're capturing "white noise."  Make sure you set 
the channel to the appropriate value using test_ioctl -r or using a 
graphical utility like ptune-ui.pl.
