What version of ivtv are you using?

I'm running under 9.0, but 9.1 should be no issue.

I've tried "make" "make install" several times.  Usually, my PC refuses
to boot up after that.  Maybe it is a problem with the Suse distro, or
the ivtv driver, or me.  I've been using linux since the 0.9 kernel. 
Sometimes, I just want things to work on my computer, and not have to
"hack" and "chop" at every piece of new hardware I throw in my Pc.

I'll try the ivtv list, again.
