[mythtv-users] Can PVR-350 ivtvdev_drv and video card driver coexist?

After many hours of trial and error I was finally able to get my
setup stable using a combination of the ivtvdev_drv X driver
and Chris Kennedy's ck-ng-33 IVTV driver.  Currently I have
everything going through the PVR-350.

However, I would like to be able to use the PVR-350 for
just the MythTV functionality and still use the machines
monitor for various things.  Without using the ivtvdev_drv
X driver I can setup multiple screens but things are very
unstable when trying to use the second screen for MythTV
(lockups, screen corruption, never a dull moment).

I tried using the ivtvdev_drv X driver for the second screen
(PVR-350 TV Out) but X complains about a duplicate symbol
(fbdevHWEnterVT) because it is located in the ivtvdev_drv
as well as /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfbdevhw.a.

Has anyone tried doing this kind of setup?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
