Yes.  I had rebooted.  No, not a dumb question.  That's just the kind of 
mistake that I might make.

The kernel was definitely loading the 0.8.0 ivtv kernel module (from 
"dmesg | grep ivtv").  I guess my last update wasn't as clean as I had 
hoped.  The loaded kernel was 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5.i686.  The ivtv kernel 
module was version 0.8.0 for that kernel.  The lirc kernel module was 
for 2239.  I ma not sure why that worked.

yum was telling me that I did have the 2239 kernel, but it was not in my 
/boot directory.

So I updated the kernel, and then I updated all my drivers to the new 
kernel version (lirc, ivtv, nvidia).  In my one experiment, the audio 
from the line in on the PVR-150 did not exhibit the tinny audio 
problem.  The ivtv version is now 0.8.2.

Thanks for the help.
