I am testing MythTV (0.24_1 from ports) using my test machine which have a PVR-350 card.
I am using the pvr250 driver from ports.
The card and driver is tested with mplayer (see other messae on this mailing list) and works fine.

Details about the system used for testing:
root at kg-quiet# uname -a
FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE #0: Sun Apr  3 19:49:05 CEST 2011     root at  amd64
root at kg-quiet# pv | grep pvr
pvr250-20101010_1           =  up-to-date with port 
root at kg-quiet# pv | grep myth
mythtv-0.24_1               =  up-to-date with port 

When I start mythtv-setup, and get to cature card setup, I can select the
"IVTV MPEG-2 encoder card" from the list (Yay! This was one of the things not working in 0.23).
But "Probed info:" reads "Failed to probe", and in the shell (from which I started mythtv-setup
I see messages like this:
"2011-04-18 17:53:55.949 Could not query inputs.
                                           eno: Inappropriate ioctl for device (25)"
repeated four times, followed by:
"2011-04-18 17:54:17.986 ProbeAudioInputs(/dev/cxm0,HDPVR)
2011-04-18 17:54:17.986 ProbeV4LAudioInputs(/dev/cxm0)"

Since I can't set up inputs, chanels and so on mythbackend won't work.
