David,
 
 Did you check on video4linux to make sure the card is supported by them first. if it is you will likely need to use the firmware for that specific model from the v4l web-site. I had this with a HVR-950Q usb stick.
 
 How you install the firmware in LMCE, I am not sure.

Is this the stick you are using?; http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-NOVA-T-Stick

If it is it looks like it should work PnP...however is it based on the same chipset as the Nova-T500 PCI dual tuner card... and it will therefore suffer the same USB i2c errors and instability as far as I can see.

All the best
