In my experience this very nasty workaround allows old ivtv and recent
dvb to work at the same time:

1: install linux-kernel,dvb-kernel,v4l or v4l-dvb
2: backup tuner.ko to say /root/tuner.ko
3: install ivtv
4: modprobe ivtv
5: rmmod tuner
6: insmod /root/tuner.ko
7: modprobe dvb drivers

Just my two cents on that issue.
