The Conexant MPEG-2 Codec driver for Hauppauge PVR-250/350 TV cards was added to the ports collection yesterday (16 Oct multimedia/pvr250). Updating your ports would pull that into your tree. There has been discussions of these cards on the freebsd-multimedia mailing list which would also be the best place to post any questions about the cards. I don't own one of the cards yet so I can't comment on the performance with the system you mentioned.
