Try commenting out each of these individually and in pairs and threes :) 
(running depmod -a after any change to modprobe.conf).  IIRC, one is 
required but the other two aren't for a PVR-150 on a Linux 2.6.13 
kernel.  Unfortunately, I don't have my 150 set up, so I can't test...  
Also, your best bet is to power off for 30 seconds between tests so 
settings from the previous module load are completely reset (the ivtv 
driver doesn't do a full reset).
