    tv card recommendations

    I have at the moment a Freecom sub dvb-t card, which is good for occastional use, but its not the most practical or stable.

    So i'm thinking of perhats getting a pci dvb-t one, budget is around the £20 mark. also would like it to be compatible with linux.

    any recommendations?

    is this one any good?

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
