I was having the same issue and what I found out was that it was happening
becasue the mythbackend was starting before the ivtv drivers were loaded. What
I have done at the moment is to disable mythbackend from starting on boot up.
Then I make sure the ivtv drivers are loaded and after they are loaded I start
up mythbackend manually. I know that you could probably edit some files 
to make
sure the drivers are loaded before the backend starts but I haven't had 
a chance
to find out what they are and how to do it. Maybe someone else can help 
you out
with the automation part of it. Hope thats the problem. Cheers,
