    WinTV-HVR-850

    Can anybody tell me how well WinTV-HVR-850 works in Ubuntu?
    Is there a USB TV card that works better?
    Thanks

    Forget it I bought a Viewsonic VT2430 which is basically a 24" 1920x1080 monitor with TV tuners built in.

    I know this is an old bump, does anyone have this working on 11.10 Oneiric? I upgraded today and it broke, now I get this spamming dmesg logs.

    Code:
    cx231xx #0: UsbInterface::sendCommand, failed with status --19
    lgdt3305_read_reg: error (addr 0e reg 0003 error (ret == -19)
    lgdt3305_read_status: error -19 on line 926
    Google's not helping much.
