[linux-dvb] Hauppauge HVR-1950 with Ubuntu Intrepid

I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1950 USB box on a box running Ubuntu Intrepid. Although I should expect problems from a testing distro, I've tried getting this box working on stable, Live-CD versions of Ubuntu, Open Suse, and Mandriva as well (because they were what I had around the house.)
First, there is a kernel problem in Ubuntu Intrepid where, if the 1950 is plugged into USB, the system will hang on boot. Yet, if I boot without it and plug it in after boot, the drivers (pvrusb2 et al) seem to load, but no device nodes are created. I have downloaded the firmware, renamed it properly, and placed it in /lib/firmware. So I'm at a loss on how to troubleshoot. Here's the relevant information on plug-in the box in after the system has been booted.
usbcore: registered new interface driver pvrusb2
pvrusb2: Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2 MPEG2 Encoder/Tuner : V4L in-tree version
pvrusb2: Debug mask is 31 (0x1f)
/proc/devices lists DVB as a character device.
Now, I'm assuming I'm missing some chip drivers. I think I should have at least three, if memory serves, but only cx2341x is loading on plug-in. Unfortunately (and I assume this is another Ubuntu problem) I can't unload pvrusb2 once loaded. It hangs the terminal. It makes playing around with it a tedious endeavor.
If anyone has had the same problems or could give some advice, I appreciate it in advance.
