View Full Version : Looking for new tuner card...maybe WinTV-HVR2250

I am looking for a new tuner card for my mythbox. Most of the ones I can find that have support in the forums are not available. I would like to get the WinTV-HVR2250 but I cant find if the support is ready. Does anyone have this card working yet?

Not yet. Steven Toth said he was working on it, back in mid-October, and projected the end of the year as a target. I havent seen anything since. Of course, if he lives in the US, the holiday chaos may have delayed him. Or he may be on course for Dec 31.

No progress, the development is on ice for the time being.

I've built the patches for WinTV HVR-4000 (quad tuner - DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T, UHF, FM radio) with 0.21.0+fixes18722 on Intrepid and it has been working faultlessly up to now.
