[linux-dvb] Hauppauge Nova-T End of Life (Was 3.3v DVB-T Cards)
Rats, just recieved the following from Scan after waiting more than 2
weeks for them to deliver my Hauppauge Nova-T cards
I need some 3.3v cards to get my project off the ground. Does anybody
know what is going on with Hauppauge or can anyone recommend an
alternative that will work in a 3.3v slot.
Thankyou for your order from Scan. Unfortunately, the " Hauppauge Win/TV
" is End Of Life .
You can select one of the following options:
1. Choose an alternative. A refund/debit will be processed wherever
suggest LN3178 Hauppauge NOVA-T USB
2. Cancellation and refund of the item in question.
