Sounds like you're specifying a tuner type in your module options.  It's 
impossible to tell for sure what's going on without more information.  
In your logs you'll see:

ivtv: ==================== START INIT IVTV ====================
ivtv: version x.x.x (xxxx) loading
ivtv: Linux version: x.x.xx
ivtv: In case of problems please include the debug info
ivtv: between the START INIT IVTV and END INIT IVTV lines when
ivtv: mailing the ivtv-devel mailinglist.
