Re: [mythtv] PVR250 Setup Question
[ This thread belongs on the users list. ]

I had a similar problem the second time I installed a PVR card, so I
went back to my notes:

- patch < v4l2 patches > kernel-source
- comment out the inclusion of time.h in
kernel-source/include/linux/videodev2.h as per Isaac
- cp kernel-source/include/linux/videodev*.h /usr/include/linux
- build and reboot under new kernel
- update ivtv drivers from cvs and build
- unload any previously-loaded v4l modules (specifically msp34xx)
- follow ivtv/doc/capturing.txt to insert modules in proper order

In my case, I overlooked stale videodev headers from an earlier ivtv build.
