Since I have one also and fought with it a while back... Once you get it
to work at all I'm sure it would work in a mythbackend. The problem is
finding all of the kernel patchs for it, also with xfree 4.+ it seems to
have a weird overlay problem where the video turns pink when the mouse
is moved. I didn't really need to use it that bad since I have  2 250's,
so I gave up on getting it to work. When I get home I will pull up my
book marks for the patchs and post the links to the list.
