[mythtv-users] DVB-T cards for Ubuntu Edgy

I need a new PCI DVB-T tuner card for my Ubuntu Edgy backend, and I'm 
finding it difficult to get any of the cards that are listed as 
supported in the mythtv.org wiki. It appears that many of these cards 
have been replaced by newer models for which compatibility is a 
question. Or are just not available in Australia.

Some of the PCI DVB-T cards that are readily available in Aus are listed 
below. Do any of them work out of the box with Edgy?

DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T Dual Digital 4 TV Tuner
DigitalNow DNTV Live Hybrid LP S2 DVB-T/Analog/FM
Compro VideoMate DVB-T750 DUAL DIG TUNER
Compro VideoMate DVB-T100 AV-CAP/DV TUNER
Compro VideoMate DVB-T200
Leadtek WinFast DTV1000T
Avermedia AVerTV DVB-T Super 007

If any the cards won't work with Edgy (2.6.17) but will work with Feisty 
(2.6.20) then I guess I will consider an OS upgrade. Similarly for Gutsy 
(I guess I could wait a month...)

Also, any comments concerning reception quality, reliability, driver 
issues, etc would be very welcome.

Thanks in advance,
