I am at the stage in Jarod's guide where I am about to get the PVR 350 
to display the X desktop via the ivtv_fb driver, but in addition to 
adding 'modprobe ivtv' to rc.local, I shall be following the advice 
gleaned from http://bugzilla.atrpms.net/show_bug.cgi?id=345 and bugid's 
319 and 320 as well. At the present time, I can manually load ivtv and 
run mplayer /dev/video0 (albeit with no sound, sigh). I will let you 
know how it goes, as this is my second attempt at getting the 350 to 
display X on the TV.

One other thing I have observed with a clean Fedora Core 3 install 
followed by a dist-upgrade from atrpms 'stable' is that the current FC3 
SELinux policy seems to kill off syslogd if set to 'enforced', so I have 
to back off to 'permissive' to get logs. Found that out only this 
morning. I hope to have this thing up and running by Christmas, as 
befits a present to myself :-)
