There's a nasty repository bug I ran into where  Yum thinks there's no ivtv
driver for  certain kernels, but in reality  it's mad because one of the
dependencies it's looking for is at a newer rev. There was another recent
thread on the subject on this list - Uninstall your version of ivtv using
yum delete (yum remove? I can't remember the exact command) and then run yum
install ivtv. It fixed things for me.
