That card does not have Linux drivers for you to use with MythTV. That
card does not have an encoder chip, so should Linux drivers be written,
you are still stuck with the monumental task of real time compression of
HD content. While it does have HDMI in, it does not decrypt HDCP,
meaning it will be no good trying to capture from STBs. You're still
stuck using component only from those.
