The PVR-500 is working, thanks to someone on the ivtv-devel mailing list.  A scaling problem (same person clued me into that) was also fixed, so now I see the entire picture.

Need to get the picture to fill the screen and crop off the 'closed captioning' (VBI) data at the top of the frame.

Everything is working again after the update to 0.20.1-fixes (and ivtv-0.8.0). Now with a 400 GB drive which will hold quite a few shows.
