there is a linux driver and support for mythtv. But pvrinput does not support 
it, as it is currently a "cx2341x"-plugin (mpeg2-hardware encoder chips  
cx23415/cx23416/cx23418). There is also a big difference: The HD PVR delivers 
not mpeg2 but a h264/mpg4 stream. I don't  know if this stream is compliant to 
DVB-S2. 
One would need such a box for testing to see if it is possible to implement 
support in pvrinput or if it is easier to write a new plugin.
