driver), is there any known tv tuner driver writer who'd like this
card, since someone found the documentation for it? Hauppauge said
that the PVR 150/250/350/500 cards used the same chips in all of their
models, unlike the WinTV-Radio cards. I figure FreeBSD driver
compatability is a good cause for the money I spend on this.

And, assuming my desire is the most reliable operation, which of the
150/250/350/500 cards is my best option?

Thank you,

I was searching for info on mythtv yesterday and ran across an article on a mythtv message board. It stated that haupaggue (sp?) had a production short fall of the pvr150 boards during the end of 2006. They were placing in the pvr150 box a newer digital model. I think it was something like HPM 1600 which has a chipset that is not supported by any linux distro. Seems haupaggue was enjoying the rapid sales of the pvr150 and a company statement said the newer model has all the functions of the 150 with the bonus of the digital functions.  
   If your able check the chipset before you buy.
