NG, good buddy. That borked things up nicely!

Oct  7 09:59:40 wilbur modprobe: FATAL: Error running install command for ivtv 
Oct  7 09:59:51 wilbur modprobe: FATAL: Error running install command for ivtv 

This is the ivtv section of my modprobe.conf:

#IVTV Section
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
#install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install lirc_i2c
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe msp3400-ivtv && /sbin/modprobe lirc_i2c; /sbin/modprobe D--ignore-install ivtv

The remarked line near the bottom is what I had before. Should I use 
that as a model and add in the msp3400 stuff, or am I just not getting 
what is happening here?
Also, I think I like your idea about renaming msp3400.ko and symlinking 
msp3400-ivtv.ko to it.
