Yes, that's the same pricing I saw!  Unfortunately, from that thread and
the ivtv wiki, it looks like it might be a while before it is supported
under linux. :(

Also, from the way a lot of that is reading, it looks like the PVR-150
is being replaced by the HVR-1600.  I wonder if this means that there
will be a shortage of true PVR-150's available...  That would be bad...
