I did see a few things I would change in modprobe.conf, not sure if they'll 
help or not...

These three lines should be the only ones relating to lirc_serial.

And these three are the only ones you should have for ivtv.

Remove this line.

The equivalent of this line should only used for lirc_i2c. Having the two 
install lirc_serial lines might be causing problems. (The line is used for 
lirc_i2c to make sure ivtv loads before lirc_i2c, since we need to use the 
i2c bus on the ivtv card -- there's no relation between lirc_serial and the 
ivtv card, thus the line isn't needed).

Remove these two lines. Well, unless you're using M179 cards, in which case, 
options ivtv tuner=2,2 is needed.

I'm thinking possibly the second install line for lirc_serial overrode the 
first one, so the setserial stuff never got done. Just shooting in the dark 
(as I often do :-), but worth a shot.
