I upgrade from fedora1->fedora2->fedora4... the box just keeps on
running for me.  On my upgrade from fedora2->fedora4, I had problems
with the busID, but was able to specify it in dec instead of hex.

snippets of xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"

        Screen  0 "TV Screen" 0 0
#       InputDevice    "Dummy0" "CorePointer"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
#       Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        InputDevice    "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
        Option      "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"
        Option      "NoPM" "true"
        Option      "BlankTime" "0"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "TV Screen"
        Device     "Hauppauge PVR 350 iTVC15 Framebuffer"
        Monitor    "NTSC Monitor"
        DefaultDepth     24
        DefaultFbBPP     32
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
                FbBPP     32
                Modes    "720x480"

Section "Device"

#        Driver      "fbdev"
        ### change fb1 to whatever number you got in the previous section
        ### output of lspci is hex, so add a preceding "0x" to the BusID
        Identifier  "Hauppauge PVR 350 iTVC15 Framebuffer"
        Driver      "ivtvdev"
        Option      "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
        ### change the busid to whatever is reported by lspci. Note that
#       BusID       "0:0x0f:0"
        BusID       "0:15:0"

(alot of obsolete parameters here)
