[mythtv-users] MythTV Does Not See PVR-250 - Must Fix Before Wife Returns!

I'm having trouble getting MythTV to "see" my PVR-250.  I also have a 
pcHDTV3000 card in the box which MythTV sees just fine.  Additionally, 
it sees the HDHomerun I have on my network.  It's just the PVR-250 with 
which I'm having trouble.

 From what I understand, the PVR-250 should be setup as a "IVTV MPEG-2 
encoder card" but this choice is not available to me within mythtv-setup 
-> Capture Cards -> New Capture Card.

Thinking that maybe this has to do with the PVR-250 not being seen by 
the kernel, I checked dmesg.  Yep, it's there:

ivtv: Start initialization, version 1.4.2
ivtv0: Initializing card 0
ivtv0: Autodetected Hauppauge card (cx23416 based)
ivtv 0000:05:06.0: PCI INT A -> Link[APC3] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18
ivtv0: Unreasonably low latency timer, setting to 64 (was 32)
cx88/0: cx2388x v4l2 driver version 0.0.8 loaded
tveeprom 2-0050: Hauppauge model 32062, rev C182, serial# 7812141
tveeprom 2-0050: tuner model is LG TAPC H791F (idx 82, type 39)
tveeprom 2-0050: TV standards NTSC(M) (eeprom 0x08)
tveeprom 2-0050: audio processor is MSP3445 (idx 12)
tveeprom 2-0050: decoder processor is SAA7115 (idx 19)
tveeprom 2-0050: has no radio, has IR receiver, has no IR transmitter
ivtv0: Autodetected Hauppauge WinTV PVR-250

What must I do to make this card available to MythTV?  My wife will 
return in a few hours and the WAF will go WAY DOWN if I don't get this 
working.  :)  That will teach me to try and upgrade...

Thanks for your help!
