View Full Version : [mythbuntu] Capture Card selection

March 29th, 2009, 06:50 AM
I need help in chosing a tv tuner capture card that must work with myth tv and Linux in general. It needs to use over the air dtv and it would be best to be able to capture hdtv(atsc). I am in America. It can be USB or PCI but USB would be prefered

I recommend PCI cards - they have better tuners than USB (but may be there are exceptions :-)). Simply choose a card (read reviews and/or discussions) and look for Linux support. If Linux drivers exist and are without problems, buy it :)
