I have 2 different randomly purchased USB dongles and they just work,
at least with UK FreeView (i.e. DVB-T). One by Eye-TV, the other is a
Hauppauge Nova-T. I may have needed to grab a firmware package from
somewhere for one of them though, I can't remember - think it's in
Using gnome-dvb-daemon to schedule recordings. It was a Google
sponsored GSoC project from last year and the good news is they're
sponsoring work on it again this summer.
All I need now is for distros to pick up the latest gstreamer bits
that re-enable interlacing, so that I can use totem (which can 'see'
your recordings and give you a nice pointy-clicky interface to open
them), and I'll be v happy.
