Can the 950Q HDTV tuner be made to work with FreeBSD?  The device is 
identified by dmesg but of course the Hauppauge firmware must be somehow 
transfered to the device and then something like the Linux dvb-apps must 
be used for tuning and streaming.

My intent is use the 950 with Zotac IONITX mobo which has Intel ION and 
Nvidia chipsets. Mplayer must have vdpau enabled.  I am not fond of 
MythTv, in case anyone is wondering.
