Yes, I have a pvr-150 and  a 250.  I dont quiet understand what you
mean by "some file that told your driver that has been upgraded over."
though ....  Could you elaborate for me please?

Also, the only frequency table options I can find pertain to my dvb
card, not my analog tuners.

Maybe there's a firmware upgrade I install to /lib/firmware?  And if it helps:
