I would have to imagine that WinTV has some device properties page or
something that shows the firmware version.  I would suggest finding
that page, seeing what the version is, and then if it's not the latest
then just call tech support to tell them the firmware isn't updating
(don't even mention anything about MythTV or Linux).
