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
cd ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck99e/driver
make install

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 
it/they exist)

depmod -aq


P.S.  The latest ck version is but I 
haven't tried it so don't know how well it works with Myth.
