Hi Tim,

I've got two of these cards, and they give a really good picture in windows so I'd love to be able to use them on my Myth box rather than ebay them and get alternatives. I don't have any kernel programming experience but I'm ready to roll my sleeves up and see what happens if you want a guinea pig. My programming experience in the linux world goes as far as tweaking php files and things like that. Currently have the full set of latest v4l-dvb drivers on my backend and plenty of opportunity to fiddle with the config etc. 

Let me know if you wanna bang heads on this...
