I see you got a couple responses already, but here's my 2c....

[mythtv at mythtv ~]$ rpm -q -a | grep -i ivtv

I didn't do anything special to get my ivtv-kmdl installed.... I simply used
the command from Jarod's guide (yum install ivtv-kmdl-$KVER). I'm not
looking at atrpms right now and I don't currently run the plus kernel, but
it's possible the CentOS specific ivtv driver is for the plus kernel.

I personally use LiveTV very, very rarely and mostly just watch recorded
programs. Even when I'm watching a live sports game I typically set it up as
a recording and then start watching it from recorded programs about an hour
