Good luck tracking this down.  I had this issue months ago and NOBODY 
had any answers.  I even subscribed to the linux-dvb list that 
supposedly maintains the driver.  Lots of blank stares.
Mine just flat refuses to work in Linux now, even though it works fine 
in windows and is updated to the firmware before this new one.   I think 
the driver for this hardware is not that stable and
the maintainer just dropped off the face of the earth.  My myth HDPVR 
install has been broken for months and no amount of banging on it seems 
to help.

*have fun*!
