Has anyone seen this?  It looks like essentially a USB version of the
HD-2000 card (only for Windows).  I would think that it shouldn't be too
hard to get it to work under Linux unless they intentionally did some
encryption.  ATSC is already compressed, so we wouldn't have to deal
with a proprietary compression system.

It also supports unencrypted QAM.

It's pricey at $269.

This could be ideal for mini-ITX systems with limited PCI slots.
