Acer Aspire L3600 mini PC, which handily comes with a built in Yuan MPC788
mini PCI DVB tuner. The only problem is, it doesn't seem to want to work. I
have installed Mythbuntu on the machine (which works fine) and everything
is going smoothly until I try to configure the DVB card. Nothing seems to
work, and I did start to wonder if the card was actually working, but I
dual booted back into Vista, set up the Windows Media Centre and managed to
get the card showing live TV, so it does work.

go to linuxtv.org and look in the wiki to see if your card is supported.
