2 PVR-150 in system--

Ok, from all the mailing lists I have seen it looks like this is what is
comes down to:

ivtv: Tuner Type 47, Tuner formats 0x00001000, Radio: yes, Model
0x00892598, Revision 0x00000001
ivtv: NTSC tuner detected
ivtv: Radio detected
cx25840: Unknown parameter `no_black_magic'
ivtv: Failed to load module cx25840

apparently that no_black_magic parameter is key to the 150 working (When
I comment it out all i get is static)

my problem is all the solutions out there say to upgrade the kernel but
i am running:

root at mythtv:~# uname -a
Linux mythtv #1 SMP Sat May 14 12:11:44 CDT 2005 i686

Will a force install of do the trick?  I'd hate to download a
kernel tarball and try to figure out all the config options that
knoppmyth set for optimizing mythtv.

Please help, I feel that this is the last hurdle to clear before getting
my system up and running! More info below:
