have the same problem. Tried the following
1.) Patched my 2.6.18 (SuSe 10.2) kernel with Stevens multiproto patch
result: HVR4000 is detected, you may use the dvb part of the card then.
However you need to load an additional firmware file, which doesn't seem
to be available. --> doesn't work
2.) Using a standard 2.6.20 kernel and specifying card-type 53 activates
  the DVB-T part which seems to work (see wiki note about HVR4000)

Hope there will be more development for this card in the near future,
but from my point of knowledge the restrictive publications from
connexant (the producer of the chipset) seems to be the problem.
