Odd. Ran into something similar, but not the same tonight. Just  
booted off the 1830 kernel myself, and ivtv wouldn't ever load the  
firmware file, so at least you're getting further than I am. :) Back  
to 1656, everything works fine. Haven't had time to dig into it  
myself either -- maybe this weekend, along with migrating my master  
backend to a new box w/my beast 3ware 9500s-driven storage array... :)
