The problem most of us are having can be traced back to the 2.6.9 
kernels.  I believe there were a number of kernel changes related to the 
framebuffer that cause issues with the packaged ivtv 0.1.0 and 0.2.0.  The 
2.6.8-1.521 kernel appears to be the last packaged kernel that Jarod's 
guide works well against.  However, the older kernels are no longer 
available (at least that I can find) and ivtv development hasn't caught up 
with newer packaged kernels.  Well, maybe in CVS it has.

For those of us that would prefer to use packaged installs, does anyone 
know where the older kernel packages can be found?
Maybe someone would be willing to put up the 2.6.8-1.521 kernels and the 
kernel-module-ivtv-2.6.8-1.521-0.2.0-55_rc2j.rhfc2.at on a torrent?
This could resolve a lot the recent FC3/PVR-350 mail traffic until 
development catches up.

Thanks, to all that contribute and make this a worthwhile project.
