I've got a Pinnacle USB dongle tuner that works.. In Windows
using software keyed to a mac address.

It's HDTV, worked well. Never got it to work on anything else.
It was reportedly supported in Linux.. which is why I bought it.
Unsure what the current status is.

What I really want to know is: If you are making money selling hardware,
why lock the software that supports it down?

The other big question: What's on broadcast TV worth your time?
