Forgive me if this is way too obvious (it bit me but then I'm no genius when
it comes to Linux).
I got the exact same message as you prior to adding these.
Are you loading your ivtv drivers at startup? I put the following two
statements into my /etc/rc.d/rc.local :
And it works a treat.
If that doesn't do the trick can you post your config files somewhere that
we can take a look?
I'll refresh mine if you'd like to check them out. The URL is :

Subject: [mythtv-users] More PVR350 and X problems
I´ve been following some of the recent threads regarding PVR350´s and
X, but alas my situation didn´t appear to be covered!!
I´m running Linux 2.4.22-1.2199.nptl_52.rhfc1.at using Axel´s RPMs and
ivtv 0.1.10pre2-ck104f (although I role back to thr 1.9 release and
get the same result!).
I can capture video fine with the 350. The test pattern displays fine,
and if I fire up Myth it can use the 350s encoder to display a channel
signal and change channels fine, sothere are no probems with the 350
capturing or displaying.
The problem starts when I try and boot with fb0 as the X display. All
that happens is that I get a screen with a white cursor (it moves
around the screen but nothing happens) and the following output occurs
in the XFree86.log file:
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such device
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
As I say fb0 is available and appears to work for Myth/test pattern
but I can´t get things sorted with this card (I´ve had X working with
another 350 a while ago using exactly the same XF86Config file). I´ve
set the TV to auto standard so it accepts any signal (NTSC, PAL and
SECAM) so this isn´t a standards issue!
I´ve posted my XFree86.log, modules.conf, dmesg.txt (when I fire up
normally without using fb0 as a display device .. not sure how to
capture it for when I do try to use fb0 as an X display!) and
XF86Config at the following URL:
Appreciate if anybody could help with this, as it appears to be the
last piece in the puzzle (well apart from integrating the PVR250 in
Thx .. if you´ve any queries please give me a yell!!
