 From <http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_PVR-150>:


   The driver for the Hauppauge PVR-150 is the excellent IVTV driver,
   which has an excellent Wiki. They have all the links you need to
   download the drivers and firmware and an excellent HOWTO for
   installing everything for various distributions.

There is a link within that text to <http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/ 
Main_Page>, which says:

   The IVTV project develops a kernel driver for Linux and a driver
   for X11 for hardware based on Conexant's CX23415/CX23416 codec chip
   such as the Hauppauge PVR 150/250/350/500 models and other supported
   hardware. ...

   To get started, download the driver and firmware, and read the howto
   for more information. In case of problems consult the troubleshooting
   section or ask for help.
This last paragraph includes links to actually download the driver  
and firmware and to the HOWTO itself <http://ivtvdriver.org/index.php/ 
Howto>. The first section of this includes a link to several  
distribution-specific HOWTOs, including <http://ivtvdriver.org/

Hi there,

Which of the details at <http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/
