I've noticed the same thing, but suspect that the input level on the M179
might be set too high.  When I moved my digital-cable box from my TiVo to my
MythTV, I wanted to use the S-video in on the M179 so that the analog tuner
on the PVR350 would be used (the tuner input on the PVR350 appears to be
cleaner than on the M179).  While the video input on the M179 was good
enough, the audio input had a substantial amount of noise on it--a
background hissing noise and frequent popping.  There was a brief interval
where it appeared to be working properly, but it started acting up again
after the next reboot.

(I'mm currently using ivtv 0.3.1y, if that makes any difference.)
