Not here, details of what I'm experiencing are identical to Leonard's:
I've tried the very latest firmware as posted here:
and tried ver 0x02040011 per dmesg. Same results.
After I get my sources/repos working right again, I'll try backing down
to 0.2 drivers and post findings on ivtv-devel where the rest of this
topic belongs :)

Reinstalled apt, ran an update, tried above, received:
file /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources from install of
atrpms-package-config-102-1.rhfc4.at conflicts with file from package

I knew that and since I only plan to use this machine to run prepackaged
Myth from ATRPMS, I backed out synaptic and apt immediately. Should I be
reading between the lines here and revert strictly to using apt?
I'm still interested in thoughts about items a) and b) above. At the
risk of sounding ungrateful -- I am *extremely* appreciative of anyone,
especially you, for helping the community for no pay -- but the
suggestions you provided did not answer my questions :)

Of course. Problems won't get solved unless they get discussed.
Thank you likewise.
