I'm running Ubuntu Dapper which defaults to 2.6.15 with a pvr250 and a hd-5500.

I had ivtv 0.4.6 working fine but when I added the 5500 and drivers off the cd my pvr250 no longer worked. I was able to get it to load but I would only see static.

I decided to try the native 5500 support in 2.6.18 and ivtv 0.8.0 to eliminate needing the pchdtv drivers. I installed 2.6.18 from kernel.org http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=217657 and then I loaded the new ivtv 0.8.0 drivers. This worked except mythtv 0.20 needs a signal strength number that the 2.6.18 5500 drivers don't support.

I fixed the signal issue by copying lgdt330x.c from the FC5 drivers off pchdtv.com over my 2.6.18 drivers/media/dvb/frontends/lgdt330x.c and rebuilding that module. I copied it over and ran depmod -a.
