I suggest that you ask the same question on the ivtv-users mailing list. I have an AMD64 3000+ and using kernel 2.6.16 and driver 0.63 it works fine for me (PVR 350). However you have to turn off the ccpu frequency throttling daemon (cpuspeed on fedora, powersave in Suse, etc.) otherwise you might incurr in some DMA errors (check the ivtv/users ML archive, this type of errors are being discussed in these very days, and it seems that today the driver developer has found a solution to the problem). With kernel 2.6.17 and driver 0.7 I still have problems (I can only watch tv once before having to rmmod and modprobe again the driver)!
