[mythtv-users] ivtv: Unknown parameter `mpg_buffers'

Can anyone please help with this? I have a PVR-350 in my master backend running Feisty Fawn Ubuntu. It uses Mythtv 20.2-fixes. I get a bunch of errors in dmesg like this
[958989.631007] ivtv0: All encoder MPEG stream buffers are full. Dropping data.
[958989.631011] ivtv0: Cause: the application is not reading fast enough.
[959650.647559] ivtv0: All encoder MPEG stream buffers are full. Dropping data.
[959650.647563] ivtv0: Cause: the application is not reading fast enough.
I read on the Mythtv wiki for PVR-350 that I am suppose to add some options for ivtv module to increase the buffers but it's not working. I added the options to /etc/modprobe.conf because the wiki says to add the options to /etc/mythtv/modules/ivtv but that file doesn't exist on ubuntu. So I added them to /etc/modprobe.conf and restarted the system. Now dmesg has the below listed errors and ivtv module isn't even being loaded at all after the machine reboot so obviously my card won't be there in mythweb.
at first it was this:
ivtv: Unknown parameter `yuv_buffers'
then I didn't think I needed the yuv_buffers so I removed that but now it's this:
ivtv: Unknown parameter `mpg_buffers'
here's the contents of /etc/modprobe.conf
alias char-major-61 lirc_serial
options lirc_serial irq=3 io=0x2f8
install lirc_serial /bin/setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none ;\
/sbin/modprobe --ignore-install lirc_serial
options ivtv yuv_buffers=32 mpg_buffers=16 vbi_buffers=16 pcm_buffers=16 dec_osd_buffers=2
