I've recently laid hands on a few Digi-Flower capture cards and found no indication that anyone has ever taken the time to poke at these cards with a digital multi-meter to discover how they are laid out.

I have two versions, the DVR2000B-R02, and the DVR2510-MP2. First ones were also sold as Huperlab DVR 2400 and probably Leadtek LTR-39608.

Digi-Flower DVR-2000B-R02: 16 input; 4 Fusion BT878A chips

The DVR2000B has four Fusion bt878A decoders and supports 16 composite inputs

Each bt878A device controls a pair of M/D'ers:

      GPIO[0,1,2] => M/D[1][A,B,C] (select pins)
      GPIO[18]    => M/D[1][Enable]

      GPIO[0,1,2] => M/D[2][A,B,C] (select pins)
      GPIO[20]    => M/D[2][Enable]

When an input has been routed the signal is split between the bt878A's MUX0 and a 4581CS Sync Separator. As far as I can tell the only output of the 4581CS that is used is the Odd/Even field output that is routed to GPIO[15] on the respective 878A

                     74HC4051A
 Comp-In (1-8)  => M/D[1] (X0-7) -> \   [ L/C/R ] (inductor/
                                     |= [network] capacitor/
 Comp-In (9-16) => M/D[2] (X0-7) -> /             resistor)

               4581CS Sync Separator
   L/C/R     /  Comp-In -> Odd/Even  => GPIO[15]
 [network] =|
             \ 878A: MUX0

There is also a fifth pair of Mux/Demux chips that are used to send one of 16 inputs to an RCA jack via a 6db video amp. This routing function is controlled by an Atmel AT89C2051 (8051 family) micro controller. I have not determined how to talk to the micro controller at this time. The I2C pins of the first bt878A is connected to the serial port of the micro controller.

There is also a set of 8 external device I/O ports to send or receive On/Off signals from motion detectors or drive alarm circuits, and an on board WatchDog relay output. These are controlled by GPIO[3-10,12-13] of the first 878A.

Anko no longer lists these cards: http://www.anko-tech.com/

lspci data for the DVR2000B ( these numbers seem very generic.. how can the specific card be known?)

I've been able to get the DVR2000B working with this patch on linux-2.6.32 kernel----

Digi-Flower DVR-2510-MP2: 16 input; 2 Fusion BT878A chips

The DVR2510 has two Fusion BT878A chips. A total of 16 composite inputs that are supported. Eight inputs are routed to each 878A chip, so only one M/D is needed for each 878A.

The two additional M/D are used to route inputs to the composite out monitor connection. This card differs most from its larger cousin in that the Enable pins of the M/D's are connected to the Atmel micro-controller, so the card is not usable until the micro-controller has been initialized. This won't be possible until a logic analyzer can be brought to bear on the problem.
