Is Hauppauge by any means "helpful" in documenting/helping oss ?
I would think there is some sizeable market of Linux users buying
Hauppauge gear, and even if PVR-USB2 is just a small piece of this
action, we should be able to leverage the "open source" hauppauge
They are getting ready to launch a new mediamvp with 802.11G wifi, and I
would hate to think money spent with them is "tainted", so any hints on
their position to "document better to open source folks" ..:-)
