Making it Work

In September 2009, Steven Toth at kernellabs submitted code to the linux kernel mailing list that adds support for the NXP Saa7164 PCIe A/V bridge used by the Hauppauge HVR-2250 card. See instructions at Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2200. Note that support is still limited to DVB-T / ATSC / QAM digital TV only; there is no analog support yet.
