[mythtv-users] can't change channels on PVR-350

I have the same problem.  I was just about to post a message when I found

I have a 350 and a 250 in my backend.  I just upgraded to FC4 (using apt).
Prior to this, everything was working properly.  After the upgrade, I am
able to watch previously recorded programs and access the backend from my
remote frontend without any issues.

But, when I try to watch live tv, I can watch one channel (channel 4).  When
I try to change channels, the guide shows that the channel has changed and
updates the info, but the channel is stuck.  i.e. if I change to channel 5,
it shows the program info for chan 5, but the video/audio from channel 4.

I've tried scheduling recordings for different channels, but I get the
proper program name, but again, video/audio from channel 4.

I can not for the life of me find any errors in any logs.

I'm trying to build a MythTV box with a PVR-350 and a pcHDTV tuner 
cards using Fedora Core 3 (mostly following Jared's guide).  I 
installed ivtv version 0.2.0 and could watch and record video, but only 
one channel.  I can't change using myth OR ptune-ui.  Nothing glaringly 
obvious in the logs, but I'm new and could have missed something.

I tried putting a line in modprobe.conf telling it that I had tuner 47 
(that information gleaned from the logs), but to no avail.

>Anyone think they can help?  I'm eager to see myth in action.
