[mythtv-users] Thinking about buying a DVB-S Card

Hi,
    I'm thinking about adding DVB-S support to my MythTV computer, which at
current time uses only a Hauppauge Nova-T 500 dual-tuner DVB-T card. As I
have only another free PCI slot I'm considering the following possibilities:

   - LifeView FlyDVB Trio (DVB-T, DVB-S and analog / FM)
   - LifeView Fly DVB-S (DVB-S only)
   - Hauppauge Nova-S Plus (DVB-S only)

┐Does anybody know of any issues of these cards under Linux / MythTV I
should be aware of? Apparently all of them are fully supported by V4L, so
there shouldn't be problems, at least in theory...

My preferred choice at this time it's the FlyDVB Trio, as I'd get another
extra DVB-T tuner along with the DVB-S one, and even an analog / FM one
which maybe I'd be able to make it work with MythFM plugin (┐still
live...?).

Best regards,
  Eduard
