KnoppMyth is supposed to be a stable distro, so i believe Cecil only
includes the stable drivers with it.  i'm not sure what the stable
version of IVTV is but i don't think it supports the PVR-500 or 150
yet.  the IVTV beta drivers do though.  and they aren't that difficult
to get working with KnoppMyth.  i'm currently running KnoppMyth with a
PVR-500.  i installed my 500 about a month ago and just grabbed the
most recent beta release of IVTV at the time.  it works great.
i don't remember the exact steps that i used to install the latest
drivers, but they are listed in a thread in the KnoppMyth forum. 
you'll have to do a bit of searching to find it, i don't know the
exact link.
