Thanks. But how do I do that? How do I "set" the tuner type? I know that
ivtvctl returns my card
as being a 250, even though it's a 150. The format is being returned from
ivtvctl as 480x480

Do I need to configure mythtv profiles to capture at something other than
the default 480x480 ? Or is this some configuration outside of mythtv?



Make sure your tuner type is set right, or better yet, don't specify one
at all to allow the driver to autodetect it.

I've read that some cards (or some versions of ivtv) won't allow you to
capture anything but 720x480 on the PVR-150.  I've captured successfully
at 352x240, but YMMV.
