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.
