Larry,

Is this the card, you are referring to:
http://www.comprousa.com/en/product/e300/e300.html

If so at the moment I'm writing patches that should add support for this card.

Could you please read this and complete the steps that I have listed for your card:

If the details generated are similar to:
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Compro_VideoMate_E650
Or
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Compro_VideoMate_E800F
You can try the other links below to see if it will work.

Read (At the bottom, or you can catch up on the conversation, note that the main v4l-dvb tree should now be used instead of the cx23885-leadtek tree):
http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-August/028233.html
And do the steps listed, please provide the requested feedback to me.

Then if this does not work read this one (At the bottom, or you can catch up on the conversation):
http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-August/028341.html
And same deal the feedback would be great.

As I do not own any of the cards referenced above the previous links provide me with the required information to get the DVB-T side of the card working.

At least one person has the E800 working in MythTV (the DVB-T is the same on both cards) so I do not see any issues. I'm not familiar with Arch Linux or Freevo, but give it a try.

Thanks, for your time.

Stephen.
