I had the linux driver working on my original HD-PVR but had to send it
back.  When the new one came it had a 1.0b disk which I installed on
Windows and it seems to work.

But I didn't see the warning about 1.0b until after it was installed.
I reinstalled
the old driver 1.0... will that get me back to the 1.0 firmware?

I tried that but now a:

cat /dev/video0 > foo.ts

produces only an empty file.  setting hdpvr_debug 1 shows it calling
start_streaming but nothing after that.  Ctl-c shows calls stop_streaming...
Unplugging/replugging behaves but no data in the file.  Anyone have any
