I did not modify modprobe.conf at all.  I'm using the default  that came
with SUSE 9.3.  I don't see anything in there related to ivtv. I can still 
post it if you want.
HD-3000 is picking up digital Over the Air (SLC, UT area)
PVR-150 is using the S-Video Input from a Dish 301
If you're using the 2.6.12+ kernel, you should be able to get the HD-3000
working without any extra mods, patches or anything - the kernel fully
supports it.
I installed and configured the HD-3000 first.  Getting the channels configured
was a little strange. I first use the MythTV channel scan feature.  It worked great.
But then pulling in the listing from zap2it had some problems - it created
duplicate channels for everything. To fix it, I modify the MySQL channels table
directly by copying the XMLTVID from the Zap2It records to the scanned records,
and then deleted the Zap2It channel records. mythfilldatabase works fine.
Adding the PVR-150 to MythTV was pretty straightforward, Zap2It worked fine.
