  • Works Great with Ubuntu Linux in Australia

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Works well with Ubuntu Linux 8.04 and MythTV after following these instructions to upgrade the driver and firmware http://www.dealextreme.com/forums/Forums.dx/Forum.8440~threadid.661972

    Using a roof aerial it tunes and locks all Australian DVB-T frequencies including SBS which a lot of other tuners have trouble with. Tuning delay is no longer than my other USB DVB-T tuners. Seems to run cooler than my other USB tuners.

    Cons:

    The included aerial is a waste of space.

    Needed to cut the aerial off the cable and connect to a proper coax connector to attach to external aerial.

    OtherThoughts:

    The manufacturer should add $1 to the price and include a MCX to coax aerial adapter or DX should source some adapters and offer them.

    You can get MCX adapters on ebay from HK or China for a couple of dollars.

    Bottomline:

    This is a great little tuner. I bought four and I'm very happy.
