From what i am seeing on the web, even if you can get it to work, it doesn't work well and it finally dies, look for tv card that is better supported if you want to use it in linux. I have two wintv pvr 150 and ati 650 both working fine under mythdora, allows me to record two shows a at a time. I have a wintv 1600 under xp that is both analogue (cable) and digital (clear QAM) that works fine. research hardware before thinking it will work under linux.
