I was able to get tvout working on the pvr-350 after upgrading to f7.
However, what i didn't get to work, was the playback using the pvr-350
encoder.  There seems to be a known issue with this and 2.6.22, search
for 2.6.22 on the ivtv mailing list.

I still installed the ivtv stuff from atrpms, modified the xorg.conf
according to jerod's guide, restarted X and bam it worked!
