[mythtv-users] Is mythtv known not to work with WinTV USB2 (not PVR not Nova)?

It gets detected as Hauppauge WinTV USB2 [em28xx]

I have a 3 tuner 2 PC system. Everything works, except the 2nd tuner on the
2nd machine.

Note that it says the device is busy, but it's really itself that grabbed it.

The usb device displays video with xawtv and I've pasted the relevant
dmesg info below.

I've done some web searches and cannot find anyone saying they got
the straight WintTV USB2 working with myth. Everyone seems to have the
PVR or Nova models, hence my asking: is it supposed to work? :)

Thanks
Marc
