In Australia (and elsewhere ?) this card is known as a AVerTV DVB-T
card. I have had Myth running on it for about three months. After a
lot of mucking about with the DVB drivers (moving from the buggy Linux
TV dvb to DVB-Kernel drivers fixed a lot of instability issues - I might
try the Linux TV drivers again) I eventually got it stable enough to act
as the primary card for my recordings.
Still working on the analogue ins - can get signal in XAWTV, but its
like its in the wrong mode as I get monochrome offset interlacing. Very
I would like to get the on-board IR reception running as the remote is
