Finally, something on this issue.

I am also having a similar issue since I upgraded to Mythtv 0.20, I use 
a PVR-250 on fedora core 6 with mythtv 0.20-fixes from atrpms
The difference is that my G key brings up the 
brightness/contrast/color/hue settings, and does adjust them properly 
for that session only.
If I exit live TV & return, the settings go back to default.

I noticed the settings are not saved in the database table "channel" 
like they were in 0.19
If I manually enter different entries in the database, then normal 
scheduled recordings will use those settings, but live TV only reads 
those settings once. it doesn't change when I change channels.

It doesn't matter if I use IVTV 0.81 on kernel 2.6.18 or ivtv 0.71 on 
2.6.17, the symptom is the same.

Is anyone else having this issue?
does anyone use this feature and have it work properly?
