As long as you don't go with ATI, you should be fine. Their drivers won't
work with FC2. Altho FC2 recognized all the pieces of hrdware, TVOUT did
nt work and am still waiting for a proper driver for my Pundit-R.
Nvidia, SiS, Via work really well - from what I've heard. I would
recommend PVR250 or 350 for a tuner card.
