[mythtv-users] HDhomerun or PVR 2250

I have been using an HVR-1250 (QAM only) for 6 months without issue 
(with a 2.6.24 kernel at the time of purchase).  No driver compilation 
necessary.  My understanding is that the NTSC does not work with the 
current driver and if it did the video would be uncompressed (meaning 
mythtv would have to do the compression).  Very solid card for me.

I just purchased an HVR-2250 and installed it 2 days ago.  I had to 
compile the drivers for my 2.6.28 kernel.  Again, QAM use only because 
the driver does not support NTSC currently.  One issue with the driver: 
I had to specify "card=7" for my particular card, probably because it is 
a newer model.  Other than that, it seems like a great card.
