Making it Work
Install the firmware:
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/22xxdrv_27086.zip wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/extract.sh sh extract.sh cp *fw /lib/firmware # for some linux distros, might need the following line instead of the above cp *fw /lib/firmware/`uname -r`
Install tools. For Mythdora:
yum install mercurial
For Ubuntu or Debian:
apt-get install mercurial libncurses5-dev
For stable tree
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/saa7164-stable/ cd saa7164-stable
For development tree
hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~stoth/saa7164-dev/ cd saa7164-dev
For Ubuntu or Debian, deconfigure the firedtv driver in the following process per Devin Heitmueller:
make menuconfig perl -p -i -e 's/FIREDTV=m/FIREDTV=n/' v4l/.config edit as needed but should have all enabled that is needed make make install reboot
For non-Ubuntu or Debian:
make menuconfig edit as needed but should have all enabled that is needed make make install reboot
Every time the linux kernel is upgraded to a new version, you'll need to reboot and then repeat the above steps.
MythDora: With a fresh Mythdora 10 install, chances are the above won't work until you install the kernel source code.
yum install kernel-devel
Repeat the make commands above after installing the kernel source.

MythDora: A non-programmer, Linux and MythTV newbie wrote the added details about MythDora 10. I got the driver to work using Kernel 126.96.36.199-170.2.113.fc10.x86_64, by installing Mercurial and kernel-devel (plus a few other guesses, documented in the Discussion tab). Other research suggested I needed ncurses and ncurses-devel, and gcc, but I'm not sure of those are really required. Hopefully someone comes along and corrects any errors and incorporates additional information in this main article, which I found most useful.
