I've CCed the mythtv-users list, since I think you might get more feedback from other users with HVR-1600 cards.

FWIW, I've got a slave backend working with two HVR-1600 cards. I'm only using the digital feature at the moment, but there was a time when I had configured the analog side too. I've got the cards working on a 32 bit system that multi boots the following operating system/mythtv combinations:

mythbuntu 10.10/ mythtv 0.23-fixes
mythbuntu 12.04/ mythtv 0.26-fixes

The 10.10/0.23-fixes combination is my production environment. I'm working on upgrading to 12.04/0.26-fixes, but I'm not there yet. I have recorded a handful of shows with both cards on 0.26-fixes, so I know they work with that version of mythtv and with a 32 bit linux kernel 3.2.

What linux distro are you using and what version of mythtv?
