Huh - I had the same problem.  I tried to 
specify cardtype=1, tuner=47 (plus some others) 
with no luck.  

I just ended up going out and buying a pvr150.
Not a bad deal at Circuit City for $60 AR.

Now I have 2 250's waiting to get into a slave backend.
Hopefully the system will recognize thm as such, 
but I'm guessing I'm going to have the same problem.

If you get it working, let us know!

After thinking about it, remove the card and remove 
ivtv (plus the associated ivtv stuff).  Then put the card 
back in and do another apt-get and see if that 
fixes it.
