TV Tuner


Does anyone have a suggestion for a TV tuner card that will work in linux? I am looking into buying one, I mostly use windows, but I figured it would be nice if I could get something that would work for linux.

Thank you

anythign based on the brooktree 878, connexant 2388x or philips saa7134 chipset should be fine, which is virtually all of them.

Check out www.pchdtv.com, they make an over-the-air hdtv card specifically for Linux. Since I don't have an hdtv antenna I don't use it for hdtv broadcasts, but it works just fine as a standard tv tuner as well.

I have just installed the dvb drivers (used the linuxtv.org site for info) and are watching UK freeview, digital TV with my Nebula Electronics DigiTV USB box. After installing the driver (on Suse 10) I am using the Kaffeine viewer software.
