 Ticket to track support for the Hauppauge HD-PVR.

 The initial patch I am attaching to this ticket is NOT ready for prime
 time.  It does allow Myth to record shows via the HD-PVR, but still lacks
 functionallity and has known (and probably unknown) bugs.  It also may be
 the completely wrong approach...

 It uses the "MPEG2 encoder card" section in mythtv-setup, to configure the
 HD-PVR input.  It does not support the HD-PVRs built in irblaster (yet),
 but the external channel changing script works fine.

 If you record two shows back-to-back, the second will be corrupt.

 Support for recording profiles has yet to be written.
