Problem: Only one tuner works on dual tuner PVR-500 card.

And, um, yeah, I left some things out in my first post. Apologies. Also
made 2nd post twice. Sorry not intentional and I would erase first 3
posts and start over but don't see how to do erase so I'll just try again.

Results of :
$ dmesg | egrep -i '(ivtv|tveeprom|tuner)'
$ v4l2-ctl --log-status -d 0
$ v4l2-ctl --log-status -d 1
are in previous posts. Using ivtv-0.10.2-3mdv2008.0 x86_64 and
ivtv-firmware version 20070217-1plf2007.1 noarch. And holy crap that
could be the problem right there as RPMDrake says that this is ivtv and
ivvtv-firmware for PVR250/350 series which are one tuner cards.
Continuing with ivtv 'How To ask Questions' I don't know about any
module options. ivtv and ivtv-firmware were installed with 'urpmi' from
command line. I used this How To:
http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO.html#toc6
Which is not up to date with Mandriva 2008.0. One tuner only working
occurs in Mythtv and MPlayer.

First I'm gonna remove Mandriva/PLF versions of ivtv and ivtv-firmware
and install using this How To:
