This is a special forum for companies that offer some products or services which are compatible with LinuxMCE, like home automation devices that are supported, VOIP phone service, professional installation or tech support. Each company should start a new topic which explains their offering. Users can post experiences and comments to that topic
The bit i like about the notice at the top is " This is a special forum for companies that offer some products or services which are compatible with LinuxMCE and it also stats professional installation or tech support "
Now i am looking for COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS that work with linuxmce, hence my posting.... Maybe i should have bored you all stupid by telling you i have spent many hours/days even looking in to just finding the right DVB card, and my understanding (which could be wrong) linuxmce does not yet support HDTV, but like everyone else in there postings state they want to be ready for when it can. i have spent many head banging nights trying to get my Pinnacle 310i and my Technotrend 1501-c card to work, i have read just about every posting, every wiki page, and have done intensive search relating to the cards i already have, now i know a lot about windows and not much about linux so i dont want to waste time or money buying a DVB-S card that i have to compile drivers for because i do not know how to do that very well if at all.
So back to my previous question rephrased:
Is there a company or someone with the technical knowledge that can tell me what would the best PCI/PCI-E DVB-S card that will receive HDTV/FREESAT in the UK.
Here is what i already know:
1. The pcHDTV 5500: From what i have read it does not support PAL.
2. DviCO FusionHDTV5 RT GOLD (PCI card) or FusionHDTV5 Express (PCIe card) : Is for cable not sat
3. WinTV-NOVA-S-Plus: Is for sat but not HD
4. WinTV-HD: Says its ATSC which is for the U.S. not U.K.
If anyone has any constructive advice it would be appreciated.
As Colin said earlier this area of the Forum is for companies to promote and describe their products. If you have questions about the system or what works with it then this is not the place... and generally people will not look here at all for people needing help with this type of issue. Just post you question in the right place and you'll get some help ok ;-)
Look here for Linux compatible DVB cards; http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-T_Devices
We use Hauppauge single tuner Nova-T's and HVR-1110's amongst others for example.
All the best
