My combo works. 2 PVR250s and a HD3000. Im running:
        Linux 2.6.9
        IVTV ivtv-0.2.0-rc2p 
        PCHDTV (The latest on their web page) 03
I put the following in my modules.conf
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 cx8800
alias char-major-81-1 ivtv
alias char-major-81-2 ivtv
alias char-major-81-3 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_first_minor=1

Somethings to note. Install the IVTV driver first. Make sure you delete 
all existing modules that relate to the PCHDTV driver and then install the 
PCHDTV driver. Load the PCHDTV first (cx8800) and then ivtv.

Ive been running fine with this configuration.

As soon as my HD3000 comes in, I'll be able to take a look at it.  I 
will be seeing what is involved in getting the HD2000, HD3000 and two 
PVR-250 working together in the same box.  Why not a slave backend for 
the HD3000 you ask?  Because I don't have another machine laying around 
and my electric bill is already high enough :-) .

I am hoping it will come soon, I ordered it two weeks ago.
