I'm in the process of replacing our trusty Mythbuntu machine which was
installed on 'borrowed' hardware with a purchased Leadtek DTV2000DS
tuner, about 18 months ago. It has fairly high WAF and I've been very
happy with it as a first try.

I'm testing with a Pinnacle 310i (I think, from memory - it's the one
that uses saa7134 driver) on Mythbuntu 11.10. Happy so far, but I
wouldn't recommend the card. I could dribble on for ages coz I'm
excited to get a new quiet machine (Core i3) to do it on, but I'll
stop for now (:


PS: If anyone knows how to make iView work, I'd be grateful! This vid
is tantalising, from the wp post. I suspect Boxee is involved but not
sure, and Boxee software may have been canned, not sure if it's
available by some other means. My understanding is a bit vague still.
