This is an overview of LinuxTv supported DVB-S PCI cards. If you need more technical information on a device, have a look at it's specific wiki article.

DVB-S Full-Featured Cards

All these so called full-featured cards have the AV711x MPEG2 Decoder onboard. Please be sure to know their limitations before you are going to spend too much money for these cards. You need at least one of them in your VDR System unless you install the VDR Software Decoder Plugin. All other DVB programs don't have this limitation.

The more modern approach are the decoder-less cards listed below, every modern computer is able to decoder MPEG2 in software.
