[mythtv-users] help with PVR 150

I've just installed mythtv on a FC4 system. I have a PVR150 card, and I 
installed the latest ivtv-0.3.6w modules, kernel 2.6.11-1.1369

I see the modules loaded after I run modprobe ivtv, however it doesn't seem 
that the PVR150 is doing anything.

I'd expect to be able to run mplayer /dev/video0 or even a cat /dev/video0 > 
test.mpeg and see some static (nothing is yet connected to the card).

But mplayer does nothing, and the test.mpeg file is 0 bytes.

I'm not familiar with ivtv or ivtvctl, but what should I do to get the 
PVR150 going?  Running ivtvctl -a reports the card as a PVR 250, which is 
not correct.

Any help would be appreciated!
