Looks like you have a model newer than the kernel module has support for
(4900->4902,4982) - In fact, it is still not in 2.6.36.  You may ping the
v4l mailing list to see if someone has added it.  It is probably as simple
as adding it to the code; though I am not sure..  It may already be there in
someone's git repo..

/* Define these values to match your devices */
#define HD_PVR_VENDOR_ID        0x2040
#define HD_PVR_PRODUCT_ID       0x4900
#define HD_PVR_PRODUCT_ID1      0x4901
#define HD_PVR_PRODUCT_ID2      0x4902
#define HD_PVR_PRODUCT_ID3      0x4982
#define HD_PVR_PRODUCT_ID4      0x4903
