Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 with Redhat Fedora 10

I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 USB device. I am trying to use it under Redhat Fedora 10 with the kernel. According to the Huappauge website at support for the device was added in the 2.6.26 kernel. I, however, have not gotten it to work. I start the Kaffeine player and get a screen that says
"Kaffeine-Xine" is OK,
"KDE found version 3.5.10-3.fc10 Fedora" is OK,
"No win32 codecs ...,"
"libdvdcss was not found ..."
"DVD drive ... can't check DMA mode..."
"DVB-device OK,"
"Distribution OK."

In the kaffeine player I try to scan for channels and don't find any. On the command line I get many messages that say

Not able to lock to the signal on the given frequency
Frontend closed
dvbsi: Cant tune DVB
Using DVB device 0:0 "Auvitek AU8522 QAM/8VSB Frontend"
tuning ATSC to 803028000
inv:2 mod:7

Does anyone know how I can get this device working? Thanks.

I found This page is in French, but it can be translated to English with babelfish. I got as far as ./ build. This command crashed. I then found After this, the kaffeine program found about 21 channels when I did a scan. Before, it didn't find any. However, when I click on one of the channels that it found I get a message saying that it could not find "kaxtv1.ts" in my home directory. I then found and Where do I get the codec for fedora? I plan to post this question in the software section.
