Perhaps you have got one of the newer models from Hauppauge, not using 
the BT878 chipset anymore, but instead the Conexant 881 which is not 
supported by current 2.4 kernels (afaik).
Also the support for 881 in the 2.6 Kernel did only work for one board 
in my system.

What I did was changing the capture card to a model using the 878 
chipset which is very well supported.
