The VisionPlus that Scan have?

As far as I know they are supported. I haven't actually got any yet
but I am going to be ordering some soon unless I discover some reason
why I shouldn't.

They seem to more popular in Australia than here from what I've seen
so they should work - people have certainly mentioned them on this
list. They are listed at http://www.linuxtv.org/download/dvb/CARDS
as well.

Indeed. It's hard to justify paying for the Hauppage, Nebula or
Pinnacle cards if the Twinhan one is going to work. The others might
have better Windows software but I don't care about that.

My main concern is actually which card is going to cope best with
a poor signal - my old Pioneer OnDigital box has a lot of trouble
with one of the Muxes and I'm hoping that a modern card will be a
bit better.
