FloppyDTV and FireDTV (Digital Everywhere)?
« on: August 04, 2007, 02:53:09 pm »
Does LinuxMCE work with Digital Everywhere's FireDTV and FloppyDTV?

These devices would allow me to use my PC to decode my digital cable
subscription (Canal Digital, Norway), and work for many other cable
systems.

To answer my own question: The devs have decided not to support Linux.

Perhaps they can be convinced otherwise?

The drivers are officially included in the Linux Kernel since 2.6.29.
