I've got an Ubuntu Feisty installation running MythTV 0.20.2 with a
WinTV-Go(bttv 879) and a WinTV-PVR150. The bttv card works great and I only
added the PVR150 to be able to tune two channels at a time. I would only
caution that you may have to really crank down the recording quality if you
plan to watch and record at the same time.
