Hi

I use the Freecom usb dvb-tv stick with Mint, it is supposed to work with windows media center but I cannot tell as I do not have windows, it is digital tv only.

I use this card, and it works nice:

The only thing I have to do, is after I reboot I type in a terminal:

sudo rmmod bt878
sodo rmmod bttv
sudo modprobe bttv card=34 tuner=43

And it works!

I know there is a way to fix it, you you don't have to type all that when you reboot, but I've just been lazy. :D

Edited to say, I have no idea how it works with Windows, I haven't used Windows since 1998! :D
