HVR-2200
Bit of info just in case anyone is interested... I just got a Hauppauge HVR-2200 and it was pretty easy to get up and running on Mythbuntu 10.10 (x64). Seems to work perfectly (touch wood) - though
its only been about 3 weeks so far.

Initially my mythbox didn't seem to recognise the type of card on startup - dmesg shows something like:
[ 5.065271] saa7164[0]: Your board isn't known (yet) to the driver.
[ 5.065272] saa7164[0]: Try to pick one of the existing card configs via
[ 5.065273] saa7164[0]: card=<n> insmod option. Updating to the latest
[ 5.065273] saa7164[0]: version might help as well.
[ 5.065276] saa7164[0]: Here are valid choices for the card=<n> insmod option:
[ 5.065278] saa7164[0]: card=0 -> Unknown
[ 5.065280] saa7164[0]: card=1 -> Generic Rev2
[ 5.065281] saa7164[0]: card=2 -> Generic Rev3
[ 5.065283] saa7164[0]: card=3 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2250
[ 5.065285] saa7164[0]: card=4 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2200
[ 5.065286] saa7164[0]: card=5 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2200
[ 5.065288] saa7164[0]: card=6 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2200
[ 5.065290] saa7164[0]: card=7 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2250
[ 5.065291] saa7164[0]: card=8 -> Hauppauge WinTV-HVR2250

To force Mythbuntu to select the correct type of card:
1) sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/options
2) sudo echo "options saa7164 card=4" >> /etc/modprobe.d/options

Then all you need is the appropriate firmware:
1) sudo apt-get install mercurial libncurses5-dev unzip
2) wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/22xxdrv_27086.zip
3) wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip
4) wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx/extract.sh
5) sh extract.sh
6) sudo cp *fw /lib/firmware
7) sudo reboot

I'm only using the DVB-T part of the card. No idea if this firmware supports analogue functionality. I'm also not sure if i have the latest firmware - maybe there's more recent firmware available
(not that i really care as it's working fine for me).
