I never got my Pinnacle Studio Deluxe v8 card to work in Linux.

The best approach to purchasing hardware for Linux is to first find out what is supported and by what software. For example, I'm thinking about getting a Haupauge 350 PVR because I believe that it is supported with ivtv(?) and maybe MythTV through Video4Linux. I'll have to double check those facts before I do anything though.
