Here's what I used for mine (can't think of the ivtv version right now):
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c 
alias char-major-81 videodev 
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv 
options cx25840 no_black_magic=1 
options ivtv ivtv_std=0 tuner=50 tda9887=0 ivtv_debug=1 
options cx25840 i2c_enable=1 
options saa7127 i2c_enable=-1 
install ivtv /sbin/modprobe tuner; /sbin/modprobe msp3400;
/sbin/modprobe saa7115; /sbin/modprobe –ignore-install ivtv
remove ivtv /sbin/modprobe -r –ignore-remove ivtv && /sbin/modprobe -r
saa7115 && /sbin/modprobe -r msp3400 && /sbin/modprobe -r tuner
