The fusion HDTV 5 lite works fine with either or both tuners of the PVR-500,
and the most I ever need is 3 tuners, so I've not been worrying about it.
The only reason the PVR-350 is still in the box is because it has the
reciever for the remote.   Every once in a while after new versions of IVTV
come out or if new kernel upgrade I check to see if it still is funky and,
as of this morning, yes it's still giving corrupt video when the PVR-350 is
recording, and all OK with the PVR-500.  This is with ivtv 0.4.4 and
2.6.15-1.1833_FC4 kernel.  I agree it seems to be some sort of motherboard
thing.  A while back I played a little with PCI latency settings and have a
hunch that this may be the problem. Unfortunately, there seem to be some
issues with getting some settings to take with the nforce2 motherboard. One
can adjust the settings for the card OK, but  IDE latency seems to be stuck
at 32, and cannot be adjusted with setpci.   I'll probably play with another
motherboard if I get time, or am forced to rebuild this production
system...  Thanks for the follow up, if I figure something out, I'll post.
