My previous mail to this ML is apparently dated 2011 ;-) Everything was
OK there since then... Except that my Hauppauge Nova-T-500 died
recently, and my ancient PCI cards do not work in the 2013 server.
I'm looking for advice for a new DVB-T2 device, which should :
* have a good tuner, because some channels (transponders, ie.
frequencies) are difficult to catch here ; the TV set (Panasonic) works
perfectly well, and I've added an RF amplifier on the roof, so I guess
the Nova-T-500 tuner was not good enough
* have a PCI or preferably PCI-e bus, and dual tuner (I don't really
like USB sticks, which tend to lead to a mess of cable)
* be robustly supported with stock kernels in Debian (jessie and
future), which does not seem to be a problem anymore...
If there are some dual-tuner, DVB-T2 + S2 card out there which are well
supported by VDR, that's OK too. I may prefer to add another DVB-S2 card
later on though (there is no sat-dish on the roof yet).
