Newbie question about choosing a TV tuner card for Linux
Hi! Can someone give me advice on which of these PCI TV tuner cards I
should buy for use on Linux ? All are from a similar price range, but
I do not know how they compare in terms of Linux support and picture
- Leadtek DTV 1800H
A relatively cheap card based on CX2388x and XC3028 (?). I read it is
a good value for the price, and may be supported on Linux, although
some tricks/patches could be needed to get it to work.
- Leadtek DTV 2000H
Similar to the above card, but is an older model, the tuner is an
FMD1216 in a tin can, and it is somewhat more expensive. Is that only
because of more bundled Windows software, or is the different tuner a
better one quality-wise ? How does the Linux support compare ?
- AVerMedia Hybrid PCI+FM (A16AR or A16D)
I think the cards currently available with this name are the newer
A16D version, which uses SAA713x and XC3028. I would assume it is not
a better card than the DTV 1800H, but the SAA713x is better supported
on Linux ?
- AVerMedia Studio 703 (M17H)
This is an analogue-only card (not necessarily a problem, since not
many DVB-T channels can be received where I live), and the only
information I found about it is that it uses a "Philips/NXP" chipset.
It is not included in the CARDLIST files of the kernel, so maybe it
is not supported on Linux ?
