An update. Peter Reed suggested installing Tvtime, so I've done that, and have 
also found another card. An Hauppage Win TV-Express (model755, I think). This 
is an analog card, using an antenna connection, and has the Brooktrees Bt878 
chipset. it is very cheap at 23.95€, but would appreciate any feedback, if 
anyone has experience of this card.

Nigel.
