Yikes! This is a WinTV, NTSC/NTSC-J 26552 REV F0A3 LF.  
http://easthope.ca/HauppaugeWinTV.jpg

> http://www.hauppauge.com/site/support/linux.html

These models are mentioned.
*	WinTV-HVR-955Q
*	WinTV-dualHD (all models)
*	WinTV-quadHD (all models)
*	WinTV-soloHD (DVB T/T2/C)
*	WinTV-HVR-1255 and WinTV-HVR-1265

Any similarity to the WinTV, NTSC/NTSC-J 26552? Is it older or newer?

With this model being different from any mentioned in the documents 
and a 4.9.0-3-686-pae kernel here versus 4.2 referenced by  Hauppauge, 
dormant rot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_rot#Dormant_rot) 
is the concern.  I can submit a bug report but maintainers won't 
necessarily have time for a goose chase.

It addresses the WinTV PVR-150.  Again I have no idea of similarity to 
this adapter.

Will investigate the NTSC vs. PAL question before pursuing software 
further.

Thanks for the reply,           ... Peter E.
