The following table lists the confirmed working ATSC PCI cards and provides a brief summary of their features and components.

In addition to this list,

  • there are several cards that may actually work with existing drivers, but no reports have yet been provided. If you have such a non-listed but working device please do report your success (either here and/or on the dvb-mailing list). Your contribution would be greatly appreciated, and would allow for developers to add your device's definitions to the current drivers, so that it may be properly listed/named when detected.
  • if you do not see your card on the list, there may already be experimental support available. Currently, the best source for information on devices with experimental support is found by searching the dvb mailing list achieves (google works well) or by posting a question about the device directly to the list (but please conduct a search first, as it may already have been discussed).
  • There are also a few DVB cards requiring definition that have not been confirmed to work

Note: The table currently also contains a USB device. It will be removed and placed in the appropriate section shortly.

Note 1: The demodulator supports 64/256-QAM, and it is rumoured that some may have had sucess -- However -- no proof positive examples have materialized. Thus, in the current state of support, it would be prudent to assume that it will not work. Hopefully this can be rectified
Note 2: The 5500 analog CC works, so the 3000 should too, but I haven't verified the 3000 personally. If you have, please remove this note.
Note 3: The Flexcop IC's hardware PID filtering capability allows the card to discard unwanted packets from the Transport Stream payload. This typically amounts to saving <10% off the bitrate of a 8-VSB (~19.4 Mbps) or 64-QAM (~27 Mbps) Transport Stream, and >55% of the bitrate of a 256-QAM (~38.8 Mbps) Transport Stream
Note 4: Hardware should allow it, but the driver has no support yet.
Note 5: The demodulator supports QAM-64/256, but the tuner can't handle cable frequencies.
Note 6: Has a working comp/s-video port hidden behind the card-plate.
Note 7: An AVerMedia press release (Jan 8 2007, CES) mentions them demonstrating an "updated AVerTVHD MCE A180". It does not indicate what updates have been made to the card.

BBTI/Technisat Air2PC Cards

The Air2PC cards usually consume less PCI and memory bandwidth than the other cards because they have a hardware PID filter. The hardware only handles a few streams, which may be limiting if collecting EIT data. The PID filtering is most useful when recording one program in a QAM-256 stream, or when recording low resolution streams. It doesn't save much bandwidth when recording an HDTV stream encoded with 8-VSB, since that set of streams consumes most of the bandwidth anyway.
