    Best TV Tuner for Linux?


    Well, I have $150 CAD to spend at a local computer store, because I received this as gift certificates.

    So I was wondering what company would offer the best compatability? Hauppauge is obviously one of the leaders in this, so if they work great, that would be nice.

    Also, what is that linux media center thing called again? I know its a bit vague, but I remember seeing it acting just like Windows Media Center...except alot better

    Thanks in advance

    You may want to have a look at MythTv's website and see what people have got working with it, since it seems to be the main program to watch TV on linux.
