[mythtv-users] Cannot get PVR-250 Working with FC4 2.5.14-1.1644_FC4

I recently bought a PVR-250 (labeled as a WinTV 250) in order to set up
my first MythTV box and I am having a devil of a time getting it to
work. Everything else in my setup works fine.

I have tried changing the "tuner=" setting in modprobe.conf in order to
get the video source right. So far nothing has worked. All I can see so
far is static. I am in the U.S. so I need NTSC cable setup.

How do I determine what setting to use? Is this what the problem is or
am I on the wrong track?

I am using Fedora Core 4 with the 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 kernel, gcc 4.0.1.

Here is my modprobe.conf

alias eth0 tulip
options snd-emu10k1 index=1
remove snd-emu10k1 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1
|| : ; }; /sbin/m
odprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1
alias snd-card-1 snd-cmipci
options snd-cmipci index=0
remove snd-cmipci { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 1 >/dev/null 2>&1
|| : ; }; /sbin/mo
dprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-cmipci
alias usb-controller ohci-hcd
# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
options ivtv ivtv_std=2 tda9887=0 cardtype=1 tuner=51

Any and all help greatly appreciated.
