I Added the udev stuff but it hasn't fixed the problem. During the 
install everything worked, after i rebooted nothing worked. I can now 
reload the ivtv manually to get myth to display TV, however no matter 
what i try to do with lirc i can't get it to run again. As soon as 
something tries to use lirc, lirc's status becomes  "lircd dead but 
subsys locked".
