Hey, I'm the Avision backend author, but I do not have this scanner.

A year ago someone said the hp8250 ADF worked, no idea what
changed or if there are multiple models.

If you can send me the usbsnoop log from a windows machine
scanning, let's say 2 pages at 200 dpi black&white (to keep the
log small) I can see what I can do.
