I have put a Hauppage WinTV Nova-TD USB dongle into the USB-port of my
laptop and can now watch TV on my boat with Ubuntu 8.04. I suppose 8.10
will work too, but since I upgraded the weather hasn't been nice enough
to stay on the boat. I remember I had to do a little bit of configuring,
read a bit of documentation and download a file with all channels which
have to be scanned over here, but can now watch all free digital
channels. I don't remember what I did exactly, but as far as I can
remember it mostly had to do with something called v4l-dvb. Looking at
the documentation for that will be helpfull.
