Question What USB TV - Card???

Hello Guys,

I am thinking about buying a USB - TV Card so that I am able touse my laptop as a Playstation2 Monitor. I want to do that under Linux and the Card should not be expensive!
I think the Hauppage USB WinTV Card would be a good choice, because it is a plain TV Card (no DVB-T)!
I am concerned about two things:
1. Is the Framerate high enough to play games?
2. Does the Kernel 2.6.10 support this card? I found somewhere a module (canít find the page at the moment), but I would prefer a Card which is supported by the kernel!

What card would you buy?

Thanks for any help!

i've tried the WinTV USB2 on my laptop using Windows (haven't tried Linux yet). It seems like the pads are slow to respond, it takes almost a second between the time you pushed the button and the time it's taken into account... i don't know why, it's weird... might be the I/O system...
