WIN TV HVR900 - Problems

Does someone have a solution to installing the Hauppauge Win TV HVR 900 USB stick?
It is making me crazy, but it is - as far as I know - not possible to get this device running. Neither on the 32 bit Suse nor on the 64 bit machine.
Is there an applicable sollution with the help of VMware or XEN?
A nice combination would be a VM with another Linux distribution (or an older SuSE kernel).
Right now I am forced to use Windows, and I don’t like it!
Who can help?:)My recent experiments had unfortunately killed my kernel. I am no big fan of Ubuntu, but if I have to…There should be a solution for Suse too! Greetings nk
