We are still working on our device to capture component video.  As news 
is available we are posting to our project web site 
http://pvrcompanion.com .

We are using a network connection like the HD Homerun so it won't 
require any special drivers.  The box itself actually runs Linux on an 
Arm processor so you can use it for more just video capture.  We 
actually started it before the Hauppauge device was announced but a 
hardware problem with our initial run of prototype boards and time 
pressures from other projects have been taking away from the time we 
have to spend on it.

As soon as we get past another milestone we will be posting the box's 
driver source to our web site.  There shouldn't be any patches required 
for MythTV as it will use a similar interface to the HD Homerun, but if 
there are they will be posted also.
