I spent most of yesterday afternoon googling for info on supported TV tuner
cards. From http://www.grosbill.com I found three analog cards within my
price range.
Avermedia AVerTV GO 007 plus/fm plus. This card according to the Avermedia
site uses the Philips TDA8275 chipset.
http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/CARDLIST.saa7134  shows a variant
of this card, #57 that uses the saa7134 chipset.
FC2's /lib/modules/2.6.11-0.3.rdt.rhfc2.ccrma/kernel/drivers/media/video
has a directory with drivers for the saa7134, but the only TDA drivers are:
tda7432.ko, tda9840.ko, tda9875.ko, and tda9887.ko.

Does anyone know if this card is likely to work if it isn't using the exact
driver required?

Pinnacle PCTV Analog PCI
Can't find any chipset info on this one from Pinnaclesys site.

Anyone know if this card is supported?

Terratec Cinergy 250 PCI
This uses, according to the Terratec site the Philips saa-7134 chipset, but
isn't specifically listed at the link for saa7134 supported cards above.

Any one knows if this works ok?

Accepting that one of these cards has a suitable driver in the kernel, are
there additional packages I need to install in order to play TV on the
Linux box with FC2?

Thanks in advance.


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.


It is the same chip set that I have in my ATI card and should work just fine as mine does.
