There is an option you can pass to ivtv that is like:

option ivtv first_minor_number=1

or something like that which will force IVTV to always start with
/dev/video1 leaving /dev/video0 open always for your HD3000 no matter what
order the drivers load in.  I found this a *whole* lot easier than trying to
figure out udev rules.
