Indications about buying a TV tuner that works with Fedora 12

Dear friends

I need a TV Tuner - external (not internal) who work with Fedora 12.
I have cable tv also ...
I see on internet to many tehnicals details about tv tuner.

I'm asking you , because:
1. - not working
2. and i saw this :
"USB tuners are no good. Aparently USB doesn't have enough bandwidth to handle the video and audio, so the results are poor quality."-from

So if somebody has one model who worked well with Fedora 12 , please send me a answer.

Thank you

you don't say whether you are looking for analogue or DVB terrestial tuners. However the information suggesting USB is not fast enough is incorrect. DVB-T standard definition is up to 30Mbps approx, and USB 2 is 480Mbps. DVBT usb receivers are very successful. I have a pinicle, but you should check with the DVB linux to see what firmwares are available for which chipsets
