im finally going to be switching to freeview (old house didnt have a UHF aerial), and need to know which card I should buy.

I would like to be able to record two shows at once.  and it needs to run under ubuntu and windows (in case i ever switch back to windows).  for ubuntu it will be on a mythtv backend and streamed to apple tv/xbmc or mac mini/xbmc.  on windows it would be through GBPVR.

for analogue tv the choice was easy, PVR-150, but im not certain what the choice would be for a DVB-T card. 

TIA

Haupage HVR2200 is what I'm using. No problems here. Should be able to work with Linux...

Get the HVR2200 if you can, Dual DVB-T and Dual Analog. But it is a PCI Express Card.

Otherwise the Nova T 500 (I have one of these) is a Dual DVB-T PCI card. No analog on this one.

if i can get gbpvr tv guide and recordings working on a mac/appletv (through xbmc) i may switch my server back to windows.

the only reason im really using ubuntu for my server is mythtv backend and s/w raid 5. but only reason im really using raid 5 is to have 1 large HDD so all movies/tv shows appear under 1 folder, but with xbmc/boxee you can assign more than one location to the same folder, so thats not really a big issue. and windows is a lot easier to manage than linux.

I've been on GBPVR for about 2 almost 3 years now.  The Multirecord (all channels on a transponder) - which media portal also does - is a great feature.

It's currently under going a pretty hefty rewrite...

yeah i was a heavy gbpvr user about 6 years ago, used it for about 3-4 years but then started looking for a fancy interface, went to mediaportal, but that kept crashing and missing recordings (gbpvr i think only missed 3 since i started using it, version 0.19 i think).

mythtv has a great backend, only misses a recording if my hdd is too full and the tv guide hasnt updated (which sadly happens a lot for me, i need more hdds).

im also considering just getting an eyetv dtt deluxe. that could plug directly into my mac mini, i couldnt schedule from my apple tv or watch live tv off it, but i should be able to watch the recorded files. its really small, but only one channel at a time...

oh and the reason i switched from windows to ubuntu was playback quality in windows, i kept getting tearring that wouldnt go away and stuttery playback, on ubuntu it just worked flawlessly, same on my macs.

I'm using a Blackgold BG3595 - dual DVBT, Dual DVBS2 and single analogue. PCI-e tho. Works beautifully.
Was $275NZD shipped, so up there a bit, but gives the option of sat if you ever need/want.

Pair or 3 of the dirt cheap USB sticks is what I would get. 2 work fine. Not tried 3 yet. Thats on windows media center, but they apparantly work on linux, and at $9 US each, if they dont its not a massive loss.
