I just got this card a couple days ago. The digital half works fine. The
analog half has linux drivers but is not supported by MythTV currently,
at least not with the internal mpeg encoder, since it doesn't use the
ivtv chipset. Might work via the raw analog video interface, haven't had
a chance to try that yet.
