    I'm hoping to set up MythTV on a spare machine next week but I need to get a TV card for it, it needs to be supported in Linux, I'm not in a freeview area and I was hoping to pump my Sky Digital box into it so I can watch/record, anyone have any suggestions?

    Recording sky via a mc is very poor quality. I doubt that there are more than 1 or two cards that support linux. They all seem to be aimed more at windows mce users.

    Basically, anything with a Phillips tuner should work in Linux- I had a Lifeview Cardbus DVB-T Duo working, but I gave up on MythTV as I could never get the mysql to work correctly (WTF can't it just install itself automatically :rolleyes: - From Synaptic to boot!)
    Have a bash round this wiki for more info & cardlists:
