It might be more appropriate to buy them for Jelle Foks ( 
http://www.foks.8m.com/cx88-blackbird.html ) (although I'm sure Chris 
wouldn't mind one ;).

PVR-500: http://www.poptix.net/ivtv/Sep-2004/msg00430.html
PVR-500 (entire thread): 

PVR-150: http://www.poptix.net/ivtv/Sep-2004/msg00908.html
PVR-150 (entire thread): 

Both look like they're based on the blackbird reference design (i.e. 
they will use the cx88 driver instead of the ivtv driver).
