The current KnoppMyth will support a PVR-150.

So will the versions going back at least 2 years.


RE below:
Mythbuntu is an awesome distro and I am sure will surpass Knoppmyth as one 
of the easiest mythtv automated setups ever. I am testing out Gutsy Gibbon 
and Mythbuntu Control Center. So far, with a PVR-500, it has been a dream!

Not sure when PVR-150 support was added to IVTV but there is no longer a 
need to install IVTV with Feisty and on anymore (like with dapper or edgy). 
It comes with the kernel I believe. ( i may be saying this wrong but all I 
know is that you can install Feisty, install Mythtv 20.2 from the repo and 
you're golden!
