Apologies. I should have provided such info in my original post. My setup (on 
the relevant machine, which is the workstation I am typing this on) is kernel 
2.6.17-14mdv. I've got a AMD +3000 Sempron x86_64 (I know) with 1Gb memory. IVTV 
is in the kernel, it's what is provided: version 0.7.0 is what dmesg says. I 
did, however, rebuild the kernel, although it was sufficiently long ago I can't 
remember much of what I changed. One thing was the cpu options - I selected the 
AMD64 extensions rather than the generic x64 ones.

I am running on an ATI-based motherboard (MSI RX480 Ne02) with matching ATI 
video card (Radeon X300SE). Despite this, I get none of the problems other 
people seem to have with ATI - I am only using it for SD TV though, and it works 
well enough for that. I run a slave backend and a frontend on this machine, 
although the frontend is "on demand" as this machine has all kinds of other junk 
on it.
