0.19 SVN (something after 0.19) and ivtv 0.4.1 because I had to compile 
my own patches to get it running on RH9.  They changed the name of the 
Tuner from Tuner 0 to Tuner in the recent releases.  If you had your 
card set up before and upgraded your ivtv along with myth, you probably 
are encountering this.  Go into mythtv-setup, clear all your capture 
cards, and set it up again.  It should work then.
