I found a patch  for at least some ATSC cards. Not sure about which work and
which don't: http://fepg.freehostia.com/
There is also a ATSCEPG plugin needed for EPG.

I'm mainly interrested in cards with at least dual ATSC tuning. 1 or more of
the devices out there use the LG tuning chip which is suposed to by far the
best. There is also a networked tuner that looks interresting which is
supported by MythTV. Don't know what chip set it has or if it can work with
VDR. Tuners I've been looking at:

http://www.pchdtv.com/ Seems to be designed for use with linux and uses the
LG chip but is only a single tuner.


http://www.vboxcomm.com/product3.htm#4 Cat's Eye 164e dual tuner but chip
set unknown.

The did a nice job wit hthe Nexus. The 2250 is a brand new dual tuner card.
Not much info on their site yet. Reported to be the final version to the
PCV530 ref design which did use LG chips, but not in the tuner.

tuner, chipset unknown. Known to work with MythTV, but VDR unknown.
