I've  had good luck running my HD_PVR for just over a year. The latest 
kernel's have the driver built in.. If you need to build your driver, 
the driver download is located on the myth wiki...
  I also have the MyBlaster,and i have never had any problems with it 
either.. Just today i had to replace my stb (4250HDC) it quit 
working..The new one had horrible hum on the audio.. I went to radio 
shack and got a ground loop isolator.. In my younger days i would have 
built my own,but getting lazy in my old age...
