The install option is not what you need, unless you want to do some
other things besides loading the module. You may need an alias line

The nice thing about the /etc/modprobe.d directory is that you can
create your own file for a specific device, so that it does not get
wiped out during an update. You can think of each file in
/etc/modprobe.d as a /etc/modprobe.conf file. So create a file
called tvtime and put the lines you need for tvtime in it.
