Milestone success with PVR250 (ivtv)

I've got a mythtv box with 3 pvr-250 cards and 1 pvr-350 card.
The output from the -350 is absolutely fabulous.

I'm not sure what kind of color problems you have, but there are some
issues if you're using the composite/svideo inputs, where you'll have
to try ALL the input devices (0-3, 5-9) to find the one that actually
works right.  Unfortunately each card is potentially different, and if
you get the wrong input you'll get black-and-white pics.

I also noticed that the color settings are off with s/w decode, but
putting in the -350 mostly fixed it.
