Personally, I'd dispense with LIRC until you can get the TV card working.

Makes sense.

If LIRC really is missing modules, your kernel config should look something like this:

<M> I2C support
<M> I2C bit-banging
<M> I2C device interfaces
<M> I2C /proc

<M> Video for Linux

<M> BT848 Video for Linux

I couldn't find all of these modules under modconf for 2.6 kernel.

As for the mythtv part of it. When I try to watch TV I get a rather unresponsive black screen.

Have you tried watching TV outside of Myth? It's generally alot easier to test your TV card with cat /dev/video0 or mplayer before you hurry into Myth. A straight black screen usually means you've loaded your modules wrong (typically specifying the wrong tuner type). Once you get static, you're in business ;)

It appears that xine works, but I have no TV device to work with.
And Mplayer works but the ALSA sound it's trying to attach doesn't seem to work. I had throught this was working but there's nothing in the kernel configuration for this. Again, there isn't anything in modconf to support ALSA either.

I thought ALSA was provided in the 2.6 kernel?
uname -r

TBH though, troubleshooting issues like this is a very hit-and-miss process. Post some more info about your setup (card revision, ivtv version, ivtv module loader, etc) things should be easier to troubleshoot; you might also want to consider joining the mythtv-users mailing list, which has proved invaluable in getting my Myth box into a usable state (esp. with regard to getting a PAL version running, as these have slightly different module configs).

ivtv - NFC.  Didn't even know I had one.
