  • Supported in linux! Works well

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

    Pros:

    I've never seen such a small DVB-T tuner. I took a risk and bought it even though the description doesn't yield results for linux compatibility. It turns out it is supported:

    It's an "ITE Technologies, Inc. DVB-T TV Stick" (idVendor=048d, idProduct=9006) which is compatible with the IT9135 drivers currently available.

    The two onboard tuners let you watch and record seperate channels simultaneously.

    Cons:

    The tiny aerial provided won't get you a great signal unless you put it on a windowsill or are very near the transmitter, but I can receive all my local channels without too much corruption

    OtherThoughts:

    I've not tried using the remote, but it is also supported in linux as a generic HID device.

    Bottomline:

    Good value, nice clear picture, works well with mythTV and is tiny! Well worth it.
