Distros and Drivers for Newish Monitors and TV cards...?


Looking at drivers for TV cards, LCD monitors... would Mint 5, 6 or 7, be better suited to certain brands? Asus, Acer...?

The LCD monitor shouldn't need a driver, so it doesn't really matter what monitor you get. TV cards are a different story altogether though

With a recent distro you will have the best chances to support a given hardware, except if it is really old. If you intend to buy a TV card you should investigate if it is supported. I remember there is a web page with a lot of info about DVB TV cards, but I don't have the link unfortunately.
