What distro are you using and what version of ivtv did you need to get to
to resolve your issues?  I am almost to the conclusion that 0.7.4 is a
waste of time.  It would appear that the associated kernel 2.6.17 has some
major issues with ivtv that are difficult to overcome.  I'll have to have
a look at my /var/log file later to see if I'm experiencing what you were.
