[mythtv-users] PVR-250 Didn't Survive Upgrade

I finally took the time to upgrade from 0.21 to 0.24.  Most seems OK but 
the main problem I'm trying to overcome is getting my PVR-250 card 
recognized.  As I recall from 0.21, when things were OK, I would see a 
choice in mythtv-setup -> capture cards along the lines of PVR-x50 and 
then select the /v4l/video0 device.  My choices now are MPEG, DVB DTV 
Capture Card, HDHomeRun DTV Tunerbox, Network Recorder, and the test 
recorders.  Only the MPEG makes sense to me for a PVR-250 so I tried 
that and set the device to /dev/v4l/video0.  However the status screen 
in mythfrontend shows this tuner as "error".

I've looked through dmesg output and poked around in /dev.  I'm fairly 
certain that the device was recognized and configured by udev.

What should I do next?
