I don't think so, but we'll find out soon enough.  The model number 
they've got (32552) matches the supported cards list from the ivtv 
project http://ivtv.writeme.ch/tiki-index.php?page=SupportedHardware.

I even did the unthinkable:  I called z-buy and asked them "Does the 
card you're selling have an onboard MPEG-2 encoder?"  The woman that 
answered the phone said that she will update the website within an hour 
or so with more details.

Also, I did something else.  I called Hauppauge.  Dorothy's associate 
went to the site and says that the 32552 is an OEM version of their PVR-250.

So, if nothing else, you'll get a MPEG-2 encoder card from z-buy for $73 
(they changed the price last night).  Whether you get one that works 
with ivtv remains to be seen, but at least it's not a Bt848 Win-TV Go.
