[mythtv-users] Modules for PVR-350, TV-Out...

I've upgraded to the latest Knoppix RV4 distribution and am trying to 
set up the modules for my PVR-350.   Following TomW and IvanK's TV-out 
howto, but the modules section is not Debian spacific.  I am having 
trouble understanding the Debian way of initing modules.  In Debian the 
modules.conf is used to string together /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv  ...  
ivtv0 ... etc.

If I put the following in /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv, I don't get an 
ivtv-fb created.  I can do all the proper insmod and modprobes by hand.  
So I know the h/w is ok.

Question:  Where is the ivtv-fb created?  Can someone shed some light 
and let me know what works for them?  I think if this isn't done quite 
right, I may get some instabilities, which is what I was seeing in the 
RV3 release.



Here is the ivtv module modprobes that don't give me ivtv-fb

# This is for WinTV PVR-350 IVTV
alias char-major-61         lirc_i2c
