Only to say "me too". With the added point that if I modprobe ivtv in
rc.local, then I have to restart mythbackend before I can watch live
tv. Otherwise I get about 3 seconds of video before it freezes and
eventually times out. I guess recordings will fail in a similar
manner, but at the moment I use live tv as a test after a reboot. This
is with ivtv 3.4m from atrpms.
