Sure, it's probably not a great card, but that wouldn't stop it
working at all. I watched about 30 minutes of TV with it in Windows
yesterday with no problems.

There's another thread on the MSI TV Anywhere which is a similar
analogue/digital card with SAA7134 & TDA10046, and this card is listed
as Flyview DVB-T Duo/MSI TV @Nywhere Duo.  I'll keep experimenting,
but unless I'm doing something stupid, I think this must be a new
revision of the card that is not yet supported.
