I have a WinTV that I just bought recently from www.ncix.com for not too 
much.. it has mono audio, since my audio comes straight from my satellite 
receiver.. It works fine, and is supported Ok..

Not sure what's up, but you can always check on the chipset and insist that 
your retailer give you one with the chipsets that are known to work.. These 
would be listed in the v4l thingi..

As for pipe dreams, I don't think so!! Mine works dandy!!
