Mark, I'm not sure what system you're using, but I had the issue with Fedora 
17 and the HVR-2250.  I set up some modprobe blacklisting and custom systemd 
units to ensure the saa7164 module loads later in the boot and I have no 
issue.  I'll re-examine the necessity of this process when I upgrade to F18. 
Automating the process described here http://www.mythtv.org/pipermail/mythtv-

## /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-saa7164.conf
blacklist dvb_core
blacklist saa7164

## /etc/systemd/system/saa7164.service 
Description=saa7164 firmware loader service

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/modprobe saa7164 ; /usr/bin/sleep 3


## /etc/systemd/system/saa7164.target
Description=saa7164 firmware

I also added the following lines to /etc/systemd/system/mythbackend.service 
(lines may be wrapped):

After=saa7164.target dev-dvb-adapter0-frontend0.device dev-dvb-adapter1-
frontend0.device dev-vbi0.device dev-video0.device
