Who forced you?  Someone holding a gun to your head?  Or 
frustration?  Also, make sure in the setup you have you recording 
profiles set to 720x480.  The 150 won't work with anything else.

Give it time.  Or, post the messages that mythfrontend was spitting 
out.  There are always logs or at least some messages.  I had this 
a few times, but got it corrected with the at-bleeding drivers 
from atrpms.net.

Yep, seen that one before.  Ran modprobe ivtv a few times 
before it took for some reason.

Actually, while you only have 1 card, you have lots more 
than you'd think.  You probably only have 1 tuner, but you'll 
get 4 of each of the other inputs (at least I do on my 150 and 
3 250s').

All that stuff looks good.

Are you able to depmod -a then modprobe ivtv?
What does lspci -v report?  
Can you cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test.mpg?
If so, you're close.  If you can't we'll help you 
to the point where you can, and then some.
