Something in the new kernel breaks on your specific, individual hardware.  
Nothing to do with the PVR card, some other hardware on your box is breaking 

Been there, done that.  This kind of thing happens all the time.  Open a 
Bugzilla report, giving the output of "lspci -vv" and "lspci -n".  For a 
good message, boot with your last working kernel, and append the output of 
"dmesg" to your bug report.

There's nothing you can do except hope that someone will identify the issue, 
and fix it in the next kernel errata.
