MythTV 0.17 and new IVTV drivers.

I've had some problems with the MythTV box for a couple of days now. I thingk it all started when I wanted to transcode an abnormally large file to a smaller one, and at the same time mark commersials. For some reason, that task never finished, and did not go away even when I rebooted the computer and changed the name of the original file!
Since then, I have been experiencing hard lockups which would look like a heating problem except that the sensors tell me that there is no problem.

Then, I got a post on the MythTV mailing list that said that the problems with a low recording and livetv volume went away after an upgrade to ivtv-0.3.2h and MythTV 0.17. So, yesterday, I took the plunge...

Sadly enough, the volume is still low, but now I have made contact with a person that used to have the same problem as I have, and now don't. Hopefully, a comparison of my setup with his setup will prove sucessful.

I just bought a Hauppauge PVR-150 and just noticed on mythtv.org that is not supported.. Is this true? Because I just noticed that there are other people that supposedly got it to work... any of you know if there are any drivers for Gentoo and/or Fedora?

Support for the PVR-150 card seems to be under development, as far as I can tell from the ivtv-devel mailing list. I would subscribe to that list if I were you, and possibly try a 0.3.x IVTV devel driver.
