This was also interesting (from the chart after clicking next on the
page whose link you provided):
AverMedia m179: This is a discontinued model that had issues with TV
image quality. It has been replaced with the m150. This is supported
under Linux via a patched version of the IVTV driver codebase.
I read this to mean that the m150 is also supported under Linux, but the
m150 is actually a Blackbird design using a Conexant CX32880 and it does
*NOT* work. Too bad since it's only $4 more expensive than an m179 and
next generation with better image quality?
