I am painfully new to Linux. Before my Vista disappeared from my computer, I used the Windows Media Center with a tv tuner card to watch and record tv programs. I am trying to figure out what to use now that I only have Ubuntu 10.10
First of all a better site to ask this on might be http://ubuntuforums.org/http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Tv-Tuner-Card-Work-on-Ubuntu-Hardy-Heron
is a guide to installing it for the Hardy Haron which is version 7 i think. Shouldn't be too different. if you want to use the software that came with your tv tuner just run it through wine.
Hope this helps!
