I don't think anyone is currently working on it. I have also been
looking at it, but don't have the time right now.

Yep, this has been reported on the list. Someone just needs to add
support to Myth for it.

Strange, it works for me.

Yes, there have only been a couple of messages on it. I guess most
people that would be able to add the support are happy with their
current cards and haven't had the need to get one. Besides the PVR-250
can be purchased for about $90 and the cheapest I have seen the PVR-USB2
is about $120, but most places have them at $150.
