The following line:
add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_mceusb
Causes problems for the MCE driver. I dont have a card with ivtv support,
but i believe the problem is something related to shared IRQs between ivtv
and USB not being handled properly. This is of course speculation.
I recommend removing that line from your modules.conf. There is no
dependency between ivtv and mceusb (or, at least, there shouldn't be).
People use the 'add above' line for lirc_i2c when using a hauppauge remote,
but it does not generalize to other remotes.
