    Doesn't look like it..& this card is ancient.

    The tuner card support comes from LinuxTV/v4l-dvb project.

    Check out the same link for support but...MythTV/mythbuntu web forums are good places to find h/w compatibility.

    The Haupaggue brand is best on Linux (not all fully supported tho)..

    I found this,, looks like it would be a good option.

    I also found this but it kinda high priced.

    That's cheap compared to other parts of the world..

    You need to decide if you need:
    dvb-t/t2 &/or dvb-s/s2 (most of the world) or
    atsc/cable
    SD or HD capable (mpeg2-ts output H264AVC)
    Then single or dual tuners & if
    analogue or HDMI input capture is required.. (STBox)

    In my corner a dual or triple dvb-t/t2 + dvb-s/s2 setup is ideal..(+ analogue HD capture with h264 video for any STB for good measure).
