A DVB-T PCI card from Pinnacle.

It is currently not supported under Linux.

Development

From discussions in linux-dvb it seems that there is certainly interest in support for this card. It was suggested that some code could be reused from the 300i driver. However it was also mentioned that we would have to support the "Pinnacle DTV bridge" which could take a lot of work/time. This might pay off in code reuse for a range of other cards that do/will feature this bridge. Pinnacle do sound fairly supportive ( Pinnacle FAQ on linux ) of linux development so perhaps there would be assistance for someone who took on the development.
