    I think that this is not an OS that I imagined, on Windows everything works OK!

    on Linux does not work half the hardware

    Thanks for your help!!

    It is sad that no one knows the solution to the problem

    No one has such a TV card

    No support or Fedora E17 or Ubuntu!

    All tuner support comes thru' v4l-dvb..
    Don't buy h/w without checking it has support..
    http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/AVerMedia

    scroll down to 707 & see no kernel support.

    http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/NXP_SAA716x
    looks very bad for the NXP SAA7160/2.. development stopped & then removed..

    http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Saa7162_devices
    there are no supported cards...

    Why not?
    There is no economic imperative; linux base is small & uses open/free apps.

    A lot of devices get support because of sheer volume & common hardware base.
    Realise almost all the drivers are created by reverse engineering by unpaid work.

    Obscure mobo tuner/encoder are never going to happen unless the unpaid driver developer has some motivation.

    The (linux) drivers that come from vendors seem to be bad & often built for one kernel release.

    TBS & Haupauuge could be exceptions.
