Absolutely correct for DVB-T, in fact that's all I do, I have 4 DVB-T
tuners and record FTA here in Oz. There are a wide range of cheap and
reliable PCI or USB DVB-T tuners compatible with MythTV.

Regards DVB-T2 - I don't know, not broadcast her in Oz. But I'm sure
someone for the UK will fill you in soon.
