I'm using a VP card here in Adelaide. It works pretty well for all

My system is also not fast enough to do HDTV, but I'm not sure what the

I also like the VP remote. It's got a nice feel and xmodmap allows it to
become a good interface to mythtv.

It VP is a very cheap quality card but works well.
