I think that there must be issues with the tveeprom stuff causing issues as
was suggested. Or something similar perhaps. I've updated software on the
box I'm using and still am having some issues. If I can get the HVR to pull
up and still have the 150's tuning away, I'll be pretty happy, so any help
is appreciated! -Adam

I can still load the two PVR-150's fine(one is MCE and the other isn't), but
when I try to modprobe em2880-dvb, I get this in dmesg:

em2880_dvb: Unknown symbol em28xx_i2c_call_clients
em2880_dvb: Unknown symbol em28xx_unregister_extension
em2880_dvb: Unknown symbol em28xx_register_extension

Checking rpm for installed ivtv packages:

# rpm -qa |grep ivtv
perl-Video-ivtv-0.13-8.fc5.at <http://perl-video-ivtv-0.13-8.fc5.at/>

And for v4l:

# rpm -qa |grep video4l
