I did the same process 2 weeks ago, backed up/restored my data, going
from FC5 reinstalling to FC7.  I have a Hauppauge 250 and 500.  No
issues with either tuner, same quality picture I had before.  My
biggest challenge was getting Xine working with the non free codecs,
but not to stray from the subject, the HP 500 is 2 150 cards so I can
say that it does work with FC7.  You may want to try reinstalling your
card(s) via MythTV setup or at least double check the setup.  Good
