there are two varieties. one with PVR (has a mpeg2 encoder in it) and I think that's the one you are talking about, works with mythtv. I am using it with fair bit of success with latest pvrusb2 driver, ivtv-0.7.1 and 2.6.17 gentoo sources kernel.

One problem is that sometimes channel switching in livetv leads to a slight corruption/tearing of picture but 'esc' followed by 'enter' fixes it quick. Another problem that I noticed is on channel 12, I get cracked sound and I haven't found a fix for this so far. All other channels have very good sound. The current driver doesn't support FM. if FM excites you much, you might be disappointed.

A plus is that the sys interface of the pvrusb2 driver is awesome.

feel free to ask any questions about this device, I have been using it for few weeks now.

Hi, all.

I am thinking about moving all of my analog A/V gear out from the
computer room and back into the living room.
I have an Intel Mac Mini stationed there running OS X and FC6, but I am
having a really rough time coming up with USB analog capture devices
that run WITHOUT Windows.

Has anyone had any luck with the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2?
It is listed on the mythtv.org wiki as "Should be supported with MythTV

Can I get an amen?
