Hi all !

I didn't think this would happen but I more and more have conflicting recordings.

Solution: dual tuner card.

The one I can get easily is the Dvico Fusion Dual 4 (not sure what revision).

However, searching the internet a bit I'm completely confused how well this card is supported.

So, buy this card or something else ? If so, what ?

Requirements:
- dual HD tuners for terrestrial digital TV
- PCI or PCIe
- not fussed with getting the remote to work, got a separate one anyway
- analog TV not required

Thanks for any help !

This thread explains how to get it working: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=616103 - I get the impression that rev.2 and 8.10 may not play nicely, but it certainly works on 8.04 if you follow those instructions.

Impatient me went ahead and bought the card.

Got it installed and working alright, however I've got a couple of small but annoying problems.
