One more thing that I just remembered that is different with FC6 over
FC5. In bottom part of the /etc/modprobe.conf needs to read like this

install ivtv /sbin/modprobe saa7127; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install
ivtv; /sbin/modprobe ivtv-fb
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe -ignore-install

you need to add the "saa7127" part to the modprobe.conf file.
