Although I don't have the HVR1800...

In my experience, it is generally easier to test a new driver if you
use simpler applications such as tvtime, azap/dvbscan. These programs
will tell you pretty quickly whether the device and its driver are
working properly or not. Once you are sure the drivers are working
properly, then move on to your favorite media center or any other

Trying to test device driver with MythTV sometimes muddles the water
too much and you won't know whether it is a problem with the driver or
the application.
