Actually, you're in luck with the PVR-250 (or 350, or I believe any card with that chipset) There's an opensource driver project going on it for a while. I haven't followed it too closely, but I know they've had it working for most people for 6 months or so now. It even supports the remote via lirc, and I believe they recently got the decoder/TV-out working on the PVR-350. Check it out at http://ivtv.sf.net/
