I've got 2 M179s and a PVR250.  Although the PVR250 has a better
picture, the M179s have been stable and don't require any fiddling
once properly configured.

I'm using ivtv-0.2.0-rc3i with firmware pvr_1.18.21.22168_inf.zip
(MD5SUM d85cb08382395390dc95ac6ebc2205f9).  Yes, that's a newer
version of the firmware than what is recommended, but it seems to work

My modules configuration is as follows:

options ivtv ivtv_debug=1 tuner=50,2,2
options msp3400 once=0 simpler=1 simple=0
add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 tuner saa7127

(The PVR250 uses tuner 50 whereas the two M170s use tuner 2)

If you are getting snow I would expect it to be a tuner or input
setting issue.  Can you post the output from your IVTV initialisation.

Q: Why is top posting dumb?
