I have two retail PVR-250 and a PVR-250 MCE in my system and they work
fine. You just need to use one of the beta (alpha?) release of ivtv. I
have used ck99e without any troubles, and also ck106b seems to be
working ok for me (but I haven't spent a lot of time with it yet).
tar xzvf ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck99e.tgz
make sure that you don't have an msp3400.o or msp3400.ko in
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/video (remove it/them if
P.S. The latest ck version is
http://22.214.171.124/~ckennedy/ivtv/ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck106j.tgz but I
haven't tried it so don't know how well it works with Myth.
