I want to build a Linux HTPC in a NetTop box like the Acer Revo.

I guess that my only option for DVB-T & DVB-S recievers is USB, but is there one USB device that does both (well), and works well on Linux systems?

If not, what would be your recommendation for separate receivers?

What other components have you picked out already?

So far I have just decided on a NetTop box. I was initially thinking of an Acer Revo, but I have since thought that the Asrock Ion 330 would be a better choice. I am going to use a wired ethernet connection.

So, as well as the tuners, I want a remote control, keyboard (and mouse?), and I will probably get a new TV to go with it as my old one only has SCART connections, and is a big old CRT.

I will continue to use my old AV amp & speakers, but the amp will be changed in the near future too.
