Recommendations for a USB DVB Tuner

Post by gone_bush » Fri Oct 08, 2021 8:20 am

Hi, I'm a newbie here with, I'm sure, is an oft asked question. But, maybe, mine has a bit of a twist.

My current USB/DVB tuner is dying so I'm looking for a replacement. There are 3 major considerations:

1) *Must* be USB;

2) Cost - Hauppauge seems to be the Rolls Royce, but the $'s are commensurate; but if that's what I have to get, so be it;

3) Location - I'm in Australia.

If it matters, I'm running MythTV - VERY successfully - on a Raspberry Pi4, and have been for a few years, but with a few tweaks, eg, transcoding on another machine.

So, over to the hive mind.

For USB I have a MyGica T230 which is cheap and also, in my opinion, quite good. But of course I have tested it only here in the Netherlands.
