Hauppauge PVR cards that use the ivtv drivers do not work with any of those applications.

You can test the card with mplayer /dev/video0 and even change the channel in a seperate console with ivtv-tune, but is cumbersome to use it that way.

MythTV is an excellent application for use with hauppauges PVR cards.
