Of course, the tuner type has nothing to do with your problem, just a
side note to avoid you another future problem.

Reboot and look in the log for a section clearly marked with a starter
header like this:
Aug 18 17:23:42 pvr ivtv: ==================== START INIT IVTV
Aug 18 17:23:42 pvr ivtv: version 0.1.10 (0.1.10pre2-ck100b) loading
and terminated with the following banner:
Aug 18 17:23:42 pvr ivtv: ==================== END INIT IVTV
BTW, which version of the driver do you use? I am not sure if 0.1.9 is
able to do X on TV-out. Maybe someone else can confirm this?

I am running Gentoo, so, here is my /etc/modules.d/ivtv file:
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_debug=0 mpg_buffers=90
#type=2 for NTSC only
options tuner type=2
options saa7127 enable_output=1 output_select=0
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1 debug=2
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 saa7127 tuner
add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_i2c ivtv-fb
My ivtvdev_drv.o is located in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers
Relevant sections in my XF86Config file:
