I placed the command in my /etc/rc.local file, but the green screen
came back again. My guess is that modprobe.conf is called before
/etc/rc.local. Anyway, I ended up commenting out modprobe ivtv-fb from
/etc/modprobe.conf and putting the following in my /etc/rc.local:

/sbin/depmod -a
ivtvctl -j reg=0x6c,val=0x9a -d /dev/video0
/sbin/modprobe ivtv
/sbin/modprobe ivtv-fb

So I no longer got a green screen. If anyone has a suggestion on a
better way to achieve the same effect, please let me know.

Jason, The lircd.conf file fixed the problem. I am now able to use the
remote for PVR350 Model 990. Thanks a bunch.

I have set up X on the PVR 350's TV-out, but it looks funny. I am
getting a vertical blue bar on the right side of the screen and the
FC2 login screen looks magnified. Is there documentation on how to
tweak the settings?

Thanks again everyone for being such a great help.
