I have 2 retail PVR-250, and 1 PVR-250 MCE in the same machine with no
problems. lspci reports them as subsystem 0070:4009 for the retail and
0070:4801 for the MCE. Sorry I don't have the Hauppauge model numbers
handy. I have had excellent results with ck99e. I have been running it
for over a month with no problems. I rebuilt my box over the weekend
and am trying out some of the ck106 series now.

LVM with XFS here. I haven't added any drives to (or removed from) an
existing volume. When I rebuilt my machine all I had to do was vgscan,
pvscan, and mount the drives to get it back. Piece of cake.
