My USB TV tuner (an ENUTV-2) just stopped working and now I have to buy a new one. While I was browsing options, I realized my biggest priority was to get one that had Linux drivers (lack of them was my biggest annoyance with the old tuner).

Can anyone recommend a TV tuner that has Linux drivers? It could be either PCI-E card or a USB box, my priority is Linux support.

The video4linux project keeps lists of supported cards, for example, analog PCI-e cards and analog USB devices.

linux (the kernel) itself has a list of supported tuners under /Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.tuner.
