[mythtv-users] USB tuner advice for UK DVB-T

Hello all,

I have only used internal DVB-T cards previously for TV tuners. I have 
just bought a backend system with very little room inside, so want to 
get USB tuners this time (if they will work ok).

I currently only have a 480p projector, so SD input is fine. I'll 
probably not be going to HD until this projector actually dies.

There was a dual input Hauppauge device that I saw last night, but the 
last comment on it was in 2009 and it said it had problems 
(http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-NOVA-TD-Stick).

Ideally, I'd really like something that I can expect to plug in and just 
work. I'll be using a headless server for the first time and the idea of 
having to manually set up drivers etc sends a shudder down my spine.

What are you all using and what can you recommend?

Thanks
Damian
