I'm in the UK and using the DVB-T card from Nebula electronics. Although I had some bother setting it up, due to the new version of the board not having built-in support in the 2.6 kernel, it was mainly my lack of experience with kernel rebuilding which was to blame. Once the kernel was sorted out, the board has been no problem whatsoever. It also comes with a remote control, although I'm still working on getting that up and running.
