TV Tuner Recommendation?


I'm looking for a TV Tuner for my PC.

I'm running Slackware64, v13.

Any recommendations for what to get and what to stay away from?

No offence, but wouldn't a MythTV community be a better place to ask?

The choice of distribution isn't really a factor; any card that works on another distro can be made to work under Slackware.

If someone has a specific card working already in Slackware, I'd rather use that then try and get any other card to work.

No offense taken.

Depending on the video signal you want to receive with your pc, you best choose a supported device from the v4l-maintainers http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki. I am happy with my TerraTec Cinergy T2. A USB-device for DVB-T.

Leadtek makes some analog cards that work with TVtime.

ATSC digital for North America. Doesn't have to be HD, but if it was I wouldn't complain.

TV tuner card

I have a Leadtek WinFast TV2000XP Expert tv tuner card. I'm using it with TVtime, and it is working without problem. I'm using the TV input and the Composite input too. But this is an analog only tv card.

i have a pchdtv-5500 hooked to cable(very limited channels)
using tvtime right now. the card doesn't have hardware decoder so grabbing air signals was spotty and demanding on the system...

I have a Leadtek Winfast Dongle Gold (USB) for DVB-T and a Hauppage HVR4000 for DVB-S & DVB-T.
Both work fine once the appropriate firmware is installed.
