Ooops. I mean 100b. I've got to work on my typing skills. Sorry.
100b should be fine. It's the one I'm using.

Make sure you don't specify ANY options for the ivtv modules in your
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
and, if you're using a French SECAM version, you might need
Compile, make, install, then *power off* the PC. Boot and it should
work. Powering off is critical. Unfortunately, Chris, Hans, Brian, et.
al. haven't yet reverse engineered all the commands/settings required to
completely reset the card, so the only way to ensure it's completely
reset is to power off.
