Ah!  It works wonderfully.  Thanks!    The sound is even good.  "IT IS 

Alas, this is not working for me.  I have also run into this problem
after upgrading to 2.6.12 kernel, ivtv 0.4.5.   tveeprom identifies
the pvr250 as tuner type 50, but I still get "tuner 0-0061: tuner type not set"
even if I modprobe ivtv tuner=50

At first I was just finding I could not tune the channel (nor was I
getting any sound after the upgrade) but after more recent changes,
including add/remove of cards in mythtv-setup in an attempt to fix
other things, it now just crashes the backend if I try to use this
tuner with:

    2006-05-29 00:11:25.303 MainServer: HandleRemoteEncoder(cmd IS_BUSY) Unknown enc
oder: 1, exiting

(Perhaps I've mucked something up in other upgrade efforts.  Upgrading
continues to be an adventure, which means you wait a while before doing
it, and that makes it even worse...)
