Would That Work In Ubuntu?

Would It Allow Me To View A Channel Line Up Under MythTV?

What About The Fact That My Cable Comes To Me Via A Cable Box?

From the MythTV WIKI.

MythTV works with this card. However the card does not have a hardware encoder, so watching/recording TV will be CPU intensive.

Heres the URL to the WIKI page for TV capture cards

If you're going to try out a TV capture card, really do the research. Some cards that are said to be supported you need to do some major tweaks in order for them to work.
