I would like to buy the same card to receive DVB-C from Virgin Media in the UK.
It seems that this is the only DVB-C USB card supported by Linux (and
one of the very few existing).
I've sent recently a couple of mails to the mailing list trying to get
some info about it, but they went both unanswered.
I've found the card on eBay for 80 EUR, but I would like to know
whether (and how) it works before proceeding.

Btw, which cable provider do you have?
