No, the HVR1800 does not use that xc3028 driver, it's asking for the 
firmware for the HVR950.

For digital ATSC or QAM, the HVR1800 is working nicely with the current
v4l-dvb build.

I know the HVR950 is supported (with various patches?), but I don't
much about getting it to work. Have you tried the linuxtv.org wiki?

Yes I have.  I've lost track of the exact thread, but if I recall correctly, the 950 is supported by the em28xx module in the mainline tree.  I haven't been able to find a page dedicated to it.  Did I miss it?  Is the mailing list the only way to keep track of which hardware is supported by which module?  

Now that you mention it, there is also http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mkrufky/hvr950/ but I don't want to have conflicts between the dvb modules there and the ones in the mainline tree.  Besides, since it is 13 months old, I imagine it has been merged to the mainline tree.  Is that not true.

If the HVR 1800 is supposed to work then it must /dev/dvb/adapter0, right?  Is there a way verify that?

Thanks for your help, Steven.
