DVB-T is a (or the) digital terrestrial television standard (the equivalent of ATSC in the US). The cool thing is that most of the channels are free and unencrypted. What made the search more difficult was that it has to run on Linux and Mac OS X and probably on Windows.

Comes with EyeTV and works out-of-the-box on Ubuntu. Also nice is the remote control with most of the buttons working and I already grapped a patch which adds the remaining keys …

A real nice device …
