Hi Mike - thanks for the response. I just posted the following to a IVTV 
support forum. From what you see below does it sound like I need your 
patch? (I'm pretty sure it does.)

Hey all,
    I've been trying all day to get my new PVR-350 working so I can use 
it in MythTV but the tuner just doesn't want to cooperate. Here's the 
info from tveeprom:

tveeprom: Hauppauge: model = 48132, rev = K168, serial# = 7336143
tveeprom: tuner = LG TAPE-H001F MK3 (idx = 68, type = 37)
tveeprom: tuner fmt = NTSC(M) (eeprom = 0x08, v4l2 = 0x00001000)
tveeprom: audio_processor = MSP3440 (type = 11)

    My /etc/modutils/ivtv (yes, I'm using Debian Sid) looks like this:

# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_debug=1 mpg_buffers=90
options tuner type=37
options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 tuner

    Yes, I'm making sure I run update-modules after editing 

    I'm running the 2.6.7 kernel with ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck105b patched 
for 2.6 from http://kmos.org/~ckennedy/ivtv/. 
<http://kmos.org/%7Eckennedy/ivtv/> Everything compiled and installed 
fine, and it's working -BUT!- I'm having the "channel x is really 
channel x-1, and the colors aren't quite right" problem.

    What am I doing wrong here? Can anyone help me figure this out? So 
far I've tried 24 different tuner types (if 
said the tuner type was NTSC or didn't say which specific type it was I 
tried it) with no luck, and I know I'm close but it's not working yet.
