Mmm.. to contradict myself now: best option is probably to just get
a newer snapshot of mythtv-0.24-fixes. The latest available builds fine
on 126.96.36.199, and has working IVTV support.
I just tried this here, upgrading the kernel to 188.8.131.52,
and then rebuilding mythtv, and my PVR-250 works.
