I can confirm that. I have two TT S-1401 cards in my MythTV system
based on Fedora 8. It works just great right out of the box.
In fact, I started using these cards on Fedora 6 over a year ago. And
it also worked great with no additional drivers necessary.

So I'd say S-1401 has a very good support in Linux.

I didn't try S-1500 though...

P.S. Looking to try the S2-3200 with multiproto... :)
