There are actually no errors that show up but after a reboot if I try playing or recording using v4l2 from my tv card (pinnacle pctv pro) i get a screwed up picture.
To fix this I have to run the same command but change it to v4l then after that v4l2 works perfectly.

I usually forget about this since I only reboot for kernel upgrades (currently 2.6.0) or hardware upgrades and may last months on one kernel. But now I want this fixed since just yesterday I missed a important show I wanted to see since I rebooted 2 days ago for a new case fan.

The command I use to record shows is 

 tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:norm=ntsc:fps=29.97:input=2:width=640:height=480\
 -oac lavc -ovc copy\
 -lavcopts acodec=ac3:abitrate=192\
 -o $1.avi\
 -endpos 64:00

How can I change this so that when run after a reboot my picture is not totally screwed up
