I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.18 and ivtv to 0.8.0 over the weekend, and SciFi
still has lots of interference on it.  I'm moving in a month or so, so maybe
it'll work better at the new location.

The other channels (the ones I watch, anyway) are all OK; it's just channel 45
that looks nasty...lots of diagonal lines on it.
