I believe that this is fixed in ivtv CVS. I'm using 0.3.6p with a
patch. I have both a 150 and a 250 in the same box and they are now
recognized correctly, but only from a cold boot. I had the same
problem where the 150 wasn't recognized and the 250 was seen as a 150.
In my system they are not recognized from a warm boot as something is
messing up the PCI subsystem vendor id.

Please run the command:

/sbin/lspci -xx

from a cold boot and a warm boot and post back the data for your 250.
This will help us tell if it's the same problem.
