Sorry for the late reply--been traveling for a week and didn't have much 
access to the 'net.

This is definitely an issue for the ivtv ML, so please follow up by 
posting the requested information there ( 
http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=73219 ).

Once you have a tuner module that supports tuner type 50, 
ivtv-0.1.10-pre2-ck108l and above will autodetect and set the correct 
tuner type--given a proper modprobe.conf.

Without additional information, it's impossible to tell for certain why 
your tuner is not being set, but it's most likely due to using an old 
version of the tuner module that doesn't support the new tuner type (how 
many tuner.ko modules exist on your system?) or an improperly built 
tuner module.  Please post the ivtv-related settings in your 
modprobe.conf and the initialization information from your logs.  You 
can obtain this info with (assuming /var/log/messages is your system log 

tac /var/log/messages |
sed -n '/=  END INIT IVTV  =/,/= START INIT IVTV =/p;
          /= START INIT IVTV =/q' |
