OK, I got it going again w/ kernel 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4.  I forgot there's a thing
in the make script that sets for the kernel, so that delayed me a bit.

Here's my modprobe.conf (appropriate stuff):

options dst dst_algo=0
options bttv card=0x71
install bttv /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install bttv && /sbin/modprobe dvb_bt8xx
remove dvb { /sbin/modprobe -r dvb-bt8xx; }
alias char-major-81 bttv

Here's dmesg with dst_algo=0:

Later when I have more time I'll try it without dst_algo.  But looks good for
now. :)
