[mythtv-users] PVR-350 and TV Out - can't get it working

I never got it working until Jarod included the tip about editing
grub.conf. Here is the text from his site.
NOTE: Most of the PVR-350 TV-Out information contained here is derived
from the TvOutHowto on the ivtv wiki site, with slight modifications
to be Fedora/Red Hat specific (and subsequent changes for 2.6
We're going to make little modification to the kernel boot line in
your grub.conf file that should force the ivtv frame buffer to load on
/dev/fb1, as well as allow the ivtv-fb module to be loaded and
unloaded. Without doing this, unloading the ivtv-fb module would
probably crash your system. To the end of all 'kernel /vmlinuz...'
lines in /boot/grub/grub.conf, append 'vga=791', then reboot your
system. This tells the kernel to load a frame buffer for your video
card at 1024x768, 16-bit color. I use this all the time myself, simply
so I can see more when I'm not in X. I'd always done this on my
350-equipped box without even thinking about it, which could explain
some of why I've not run into some of the problems other folks have...
Now try loading up the ivtv driver:
# /sbin/depmod -a
# /sbin/modprobe ivtv
