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