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 the upstream driver support is limited to DVB-T / ATSC / QAM digital TV only
Experimental analog support was released by KernelLabs on July 31, 2010. See here for more details related to installing analog support: KernelLabs saa7164 analog announcement
Development continues at http://www.steventoth.net/blog/products/hvr-2250/
The windows driver and linux firmware extraction scripts are up on http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx
Drivers are expected to be included in Linux 2.6.32.
In the meantime, for stable tree hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/saa7164-stable/
For Development tree hg clone http://kernellabs.com/hg/~stoth/saa7164-dev/
then... make menuconfig edit as needed make make install reboot
