Most tuner card types are automatically enumerated by mythtv-setup once 
you select the type.  Mythtv-setup is looking for something particular 
for MPEG encoders to distinguish it from normal V4L cards, and the 
inputs on the -2250s did not match.  This was brought up a few months 
ago, and I believe it was fixed prior to the 0.24 release.
