I use a [[Twinhan]] Express compatible card http://www.axtrom.com/ [Axtrom] which works great with linux. So far kaffeine is the best choice to use with a budget card. Since xine does not let you to record and it's interface is buggy and [[VDR]] is very hard to setup and startup I decided to stick to kaffeine. It lets you record un-attended. you can even record and watch multiple channels within same transponder.
