Cool DVB-T or DVB-S cards that are compatible with Ubuntu 11.04 PLEASE??


It's 2011....I'm here in the UK...looking to find a DVB TV card that can be made to work with 11.04

Looking for something that is currently available.

Any thoughts please??

Have you tried a google search for "dvb-t uk"? You should find something like a Freeview usb stick that works with Ubuntu. There are also cards available.

Some googling brought me to this for mythbuntu (which has instructions for installing under 11.04 Natty): http://parker1.co.uk/mythtv_novafw.php This leads to a look-up in amazon.uk. Is this what you are looking for? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hauppauge-Wi.../dp/B000I1RHWA
