TV card to work out of the box

Postby cakehead » Sun Dec 02, 2007 6:28 am

I am looking to buy myself a TV card for christmas, it will be PCI as I don't like USB. I am using Mint ,Celena at the moment but I have Daryna ready to install when I get the time. Does anyone know which TV card will work out of the box and which cards to avoid like the plague. I have a budget of £50. Thanks guys
