First of all.. If you are using one of the later driver then all you 
need in your .conf is
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv

and of course the line that does the actual modprobe'ing.

To set the output of the PVR try using ivtvctl specifically these options:
  -N, --list-outputs display video outputs [VIDIOC_ENUMOUTPUT]
  -L, --get-output   query the current video output [VIDIOC_G_OUTPUT]
  -l, --set-output=<num>

S-Video _should_ be output nr. 2 so to set using S-Video type
  ivtvctl -l 2
and give it another go.

The ivtv driver should detect that you are using PAL but in case it 
doesn't try ivtvctl -u 0xff.

Hope it helps...
