I never tried, sorry. Works fine this way with both 2.6 and 2.4 kernels.
Here are the pertinent modules I have, in reverse order they are loaded;
kernel is 2.6.0-test9.
lirc_gpio 8112 1 - Live 0xd08c9000
nvidia 1702060 10 - Live 0xd0ad4000
tuner 14476 0 - Live 0xd086f000
bttv 139116 1 lirc_gpio, Live 0xd088c000
video_buf 17412 1 bttv, Live 0xd0863000
i2c_algo_bit 9288 1 bttv, Live 0xd0835000
btcx_risc 3848 1 bttv, Live 0xd083f000
