Just out of curiosity, what version of ivtv are you using?  I'm running MythTV
build 11281 and ivtv 0.7.0, and channel 45 still has lots of interference on
it.  That it's channel 45 is a real pisser here, because that's SciFi.  Since I
haven't gotten around to setting up MythTV with another capture card on another
computer, it looks like I'll be waiting for this evening's Battlestar Galactica
to turn up on Usenet.  I never had problems picking up this channel with a
PVR-350, PVR-250MCE, or PVR-150.
