You didn't take out enough...  (see below)

This is the right msp3400 module, but it's definitely good you've been 
searching the archives.

This is because you have a line forcing the tuner module to use type 5 
(either "options ivtv tuner=5" or "options tuner type=5" or, most 
likely, something to the effect of "install tuner { /sbin/insmod tuner 
type=5 }")...

However, you have a type 20 tuner.

Since the tuner was manually specified, the incorrect setting (tuner=5) 
overrode the correct, autodetected (tuner=20) setting.

Note also that because your msp3400, and tuner modules were inserted 
into the kernel before tveeprom (i.e. before ivtv), you also have a line

install ivtv...

If you remove all options lines (options ivtv, options msp3400, options 
tuner, options saa7127, options saa7115) and all install lines (for the 
same modules as the options), your driver will work.  It wants to work, 
but the settings overriding the autodetection are preventing it from 
doing so.  :)

Good luck,
