I'm successfully using the hd3000 with a 2.6.11 kernel. In two 
machines, One with 2x HD3000s and another with 1x hd3000, and a pvr-350.

You need to use the v2.0 package from pchdtv.com and use the dvb 
driver.  Works like a charm. I don?t think that the old [atsc] driver 
works well with the .11 kernels, but the dvb driver is better anyways, 
especially for multiple cards. Quoting Greg Woods <greg at gregandeva.net>:
