Pros:
* Works with Linux, but i had to install the latest drivers fom a git repo. See http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers and http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers#Retrieving_and_Building.2FCompiling_the_Latest_V4L-DVB_Source_Code for detailed instructions. * Cheap.
Cons:
* Cheap * Included antenna is weak for DVB, but should be ok for FM.
Other:
The character limit on reviews is silly, if you can give a short concise review in less than 500 characters.
Bottomline:
Buy two, then you can use tvheadend to record one channel while viewing one on another transponder.
