Bookmark that site, then search it for help about ivtv, mythtv and a LOT
of other stuff.

I spent a chunk of a rainy Saturday just reading threads in the mythtv
archive and learnt a LOT... even though some of it was old stuff, now
obsoleted by changes to the drivers, it gave a structural framework for
how things are supposed to work, and lots of hints about where to go to
tinker with stuff that doesn't quite work (such as the message logs,
dmesg, udev rules etc...).
