If you're referring to the recent episode (Christmas 06) when
Hauppauge was temporarily sending out unsupported-on-Linux HVR-1600
cards due to PVR-150 stock shortages, this should be resolved. If in
doubt, check that the box includes a real PVR-150 card, as this should
still work with the ivtv driver. You may also want to check the
ivtv-users mailing list in case there are any current reports of
problems with PVR-150 cards.
