I’ll be in Munich next week and I have a spare T290 T2 USB stick, I usually run different software on my German system but I can try MythTV with it.

However I was concerned about this part of the article:

"Freenet TV will employ a cardless encryption system from Irdeto”

This suggests MythTV (or the receiver driver) would need support for Irdeto’s cardless system!
