    That's very true, but if you'll look at my post again, you'll see 
that it has nothing to do with not making the hardware work, but making 
it work.

    I assume you are recommending I follow the advice on that page. 
Well, the code snippets relevant to my immediate problem (i.e. getting 
dmesg | grep -i ivtv to return something meaningful) would be:
options saa7134 card=65 tuner=54
alias snd-card-1 saa7134-alsa
options snd-card-1 index=1
remove saa7134-alsa { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; 
}; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove saa7134-alsa
options saa7134 card=65 tuner=54
and after following that and rebooting, it hasn't made a difference.

    So again, my problem is getting the hardware working, not not working.
