Hmm, I think that shouldn't be necessary if you are using the latest
pvrxxx port from usleep. Unfortunately, the port needs a fix on recent
RELENG_6 to compile, I'm not sure if it compiles without problems on
6.2-RELEASE. We're all hoping that usleep will find the time to uypdate
the port one of these days. :-)

 Have you tried updating your ports tree to get the latest pvrxxx port?

Hmm, I have my PVR-350 in a FreeBSD box, it looks like this:

root at kg-quiet# pciconf -lv | grep -B 4 video
cxm0 at pci2:0:0:  class=0x040000 card=0x40000070 chip=0x08034444 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Conexant Inc (Was: Globespan, ICompression Inc)'
    device   = 'iTVC15/CX23415 MPEG Codec'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = video

and with lspci (installed from ports):
root at kg-quiet# lspci -vs 02:00.0
02:00.0 Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC15 MPEG-2 Encoder (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Hauppauge computer works Inc. WinTV PVR-350
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 20
        Memory at f8000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)
        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2

Unfortuntately, the pvrxxx driver doesn't work for this card right now.
