Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T USB
It is supported under Linux.
This device is a rebadge of the DVB-T member of TechnoTrend's TT-PCline USB family of devices, which were USB1.1 based and of the, so called, "budget" category.
Due to the limited bus bandwidth provided by USB 1.1, of approximately 12Mbps, only selected PIDs can be transferred over USB to the host system. Consequently, some high bandwidth transponders won't work, and HDTV reception is not possible.

This device has only one frontend - but there are two possibilities Although the hardware is capable of delivering the entire transport stream, the bandwidth of the USB bus prevents it
Making it Work
Requires a Firmware, dvb-fe-tda10046.fw, that needs to get peeled out of the Windows Driver.
The following drivers are needed for these devices:
- cx22700.ko - tda1004x.ko - dvb-ttusb-budget.ko
