I've had a BTTV card and a PVR250 (IVTV) working in the same box for
close to a year now.  I'm using the 2.X drivers these days, so it
should be pretty much the same.  I  haven't done anything special and
have never had a problem with it.

Jarod has a modprob.conf file on his site for the combo.  You might
want to check that.  His is the same as mine for the bttv and ivtv
section.  Your's appears differnt.
