    Hauppauge HVR-2250 With Mythbuntu

    Hello everyone.

    Well I've finally decided to try and build my first PVR. Anyway I'm still in the early research phase and I'm stuck on the Capture Card. Anyway I found the Hauppauge HVR-2250 which seems like a good option. However I've been searching around to see if it is supported by Linux and MythTV.

    Is anyone using it and how is it working?

    Thanks
    steve

    Re: Need a Dual turner Capture card for myCable, WinTV-PVR 500 is discontinued* CONFIRMED * so what do you recommend ?

    well I started the thread so I will close it, I finally ended up buying the hauppauge 2250, linux drivers are on their way ( it is even stated on hauppauge webpage ), basically this will be the replacement for the PVR 500, since they are getting a lot of heat from FCC to not sell any cards that can't decode digital, as I said on a post before, I think this card will serve 2 purposes, first the intended one and second I could help do a lot of beta testing ( or even dust my old C knowledge and work a bit on the driver )

    Thank you all for your responses.
    Roberto.

    But I'm still not sure if this answer if it fully works or not.

    Thoughts or anyone using it?

    No drivers as of today. I contacted Hauppauge about this a month or two back, and they don't do any in-house linux support for any of their product.

    Development is on ice...which is very disappointing because it does look like the perfect tuner card. See http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.dvb/46504
