I suggest you start with the MythTV wiki entry for the card:
The card works, but is a bit, ahem, quirky. ;-) I'm using mine as my second
tuner, with acceptable results. I wouldn't bother with the software encoding
configuration; although it should theoretically work, it's got a lot of
disadvantages and few advantages compared to using the MPEG-2 hardware
encoding configuration. If you can't get it working after reading the wiki
entry, try posting again with more details. Also, log files are your friend,
so be sure to check them; they may contain clues to problems.
