[mythtv-users] Couldn't read data from the capture card in 15 seconds

I get the message in the subject from the backend when I try watching live TV 
(which gives a black screen only)
I'm running FC2, kernel 2.6.8 and mythtv-0.16 using a PVR-350 and ivtv-111l (L 
that is).

xine pvr:/ works fine (stutters a bit at startup, but continues just fine).

After using mythtv, the ivtv driver seems stuck and I need to reload it to get 
xine working again.
I've been googling a bit and found some things about I/O which I believe do 
not apply in my case (it's a dedicated mythtv box and used to work fine with 
mythtv-0.15.1 and an older ivtv-driver)

I know the card and driver are working (otherwise xine wouldn't work) so I 
don't understand why mythtv doesn't receive any data from the card.

Is there a way to check why mythtv doesn't receive data ?
