ATI Theater 550 Chipset?

I have a nice working infstall of mepis at this point. Nvidia 6800 with 3D acceleration all set up. Cedega running World of Warcraft no problem, etc.

Bery happy, however the final piece in the puzzle is my new Sapphire Theatrix 550 pro

Using the ATI theater 550 chipset. This is a TV tuner card. It is very new, and I want to know if anyone has gotten it working with linux as of yet?

This is the one thing holding me back from leaving windows forever.

Unhappy Me too.

I also have an ATI Theater 550 Pro, unfortunately this card is still a no go on Linux. I would buy a card for someone if they could get it working for me on Linux. The cost of purchasing another card is trivial since in order for me to get TV on Linux I'd have to buy another card anyway. :|

I am bumping this too, as I have the same card, and am interested in whether or not it can be made to work in Linux.

I'm hoping that someone has been able to make a driver in the last 6 months (since this thread's last post).
