If you are looking for a hybrid card, the Compro VideoMate 300 DVB-T
might be a good choice. Especially if you want it to lock on poor
signal quality.
If you look for DVB-T only, the 200(a) might be worth looking at.
The a-version is not supported yet, but there is a verified hack that
makes it working. So - not a big deal as soon as there is time.
