Looking for the Em2880 driver for MSI Vox

Hey everybody,

I recently installed Karmic Koala and Myth TV on my old laptop hoping to breathe some life into it as a DVR.

My TV Tuner/Video Capture card is an MSI Vox card which uses USB 2.0. My only hope to get it working under Linux seems to the Em2880 driver, but the website the driver was hosted on ( appears to be gone. Does anyone know where it might be mirrored or a repository I can download it from (plus some instructions?)

MythTV actually almost appears to recognize the card (using an Em28xx driver) but can't tune in any channels or read from the video inputs.

If anyone has any advice on obtaining the driver/getting this card to behave, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
