I note you are using iinet, and so are in Australia.

I have older PCI cards from winfast that are well out of date (DTV-1000 
T) that worked well.

However I switched to using  USB cards the Asus  My Cinema U3100 Mini, I 
have a couple and they have been quite OK. More recently I discovered 
the PS3 Playstation "PlayTV " available at good prices from Dick Smith 
or JB Hi-Fi especially during sales.

That has dual inbuilt tuners and uses the same driver as the Asus U3100 
i.e. dvb-usb-dib0700 firmware. I have found them to just work out of the 
box with my system, using openSUSE 12.1 & 12.2.

Hope this helps,
