(...It seems that it is a Hybrid card with v4l2 driver ? I am trying to set mine up with MythTV (Hauppauge HVR 1300), the dvb-t part seems to work, but I have a very bad signal, so I use the analog part only at the moment (through a STB). Did you manage to make the mpeg2 hardware compression working with it ? I did configure the card as V4l amalog using /dev/video0 (uncompressed) but the quality is not as good than with than the /dev/video1 (compressed). I can't figure out how to configure Myth for this ? The cat /dev/video1 > test.mpeg work very well. I try to use the the MPEG card type in Myth and I modify mpegrecorder.cpp to avoid to open twice the device (as it is not supported by the driver) but most of the time it is failing. Did you have more luck. Sorry to bother you on your discussion page, but I can't find your email. Xavier 14:08, 25 March 2008)

Hi Xavier - I have two Hauppage cards - a Hauppauge PVR 350 (hardware MPEG encoder/decoder) and a Nova S+ (DVB-S card) so I cant talk directly to your experience. However, from my understanding the dual tuner cards can expose two /dev/video devices to expose the MPEG streams?

I will have a look when I am home at the Myth config..
